We’re chuffed to bits to present this tour of Ole Blighty’s lingo. It’s the dog’s bollocks! Try it out on the lads down your local, have a few pints, don’t worry about sounding naff – if it all goes pear-shaped, wait for the sound of ‘Oh, bless!’ as they pat you on the back and buy you another bevvie.

Features special sections on Welsh, Scottish, Cornish and Scots (Lallans).

Lonely Planet’s Language & Culture series goes behind the scenes of languages you thought you knew. Get into the culture and humour behind common – and not so common – English expressions and learn about the local languages that inspired them.

* Please note, this is not a comprehensive English dictionary and phrasebook.
