Lorry or truck? Potato chips or crisps? Autumn or fall? From the chemist to the chippy, whether you're at sixes and sevens, chuffed to bits or over the moon, this book may surprise anyone who thinks that the same language is spoken in the United States and in Britain. The Illustrated American Tourist Guide to English English contains nearly 3,500 definitions and translations to aid the American visitor in understanding and being understood in England. From everyday slang to differences in formal language, the book covers just about any social situation likely to be encountered. An invaluable reference guide for the American tourist, this is also a book to be dipped into for sheer pleasure and enjoyment of the surprising, often amusing, distinctions between American and English English.
