British in the Language and Culture series from Lonely Planet, providing an irreverent view of a selection of languages and revealing the meanings behind everyday native expressions. Written in a humorous style, these pocket-sized guides present a thematic guide to each language through descriptions of vocabulary, colloquiums and slang. Each guide begins with a short history of the language, including unique features and origins. There is also guidance on pronunciation, grammar, phrasing, greetings, etiquette and body language.
Individual sections are dedicated to lifestyle and society, travel and transport, food and drink, sport, entertainment, slang, misunderstandings and regional variations or languages. Extensive descriptions of each area are interlaced with humorous anecdotes, common misunderstandings and other words and phrases which may confuse visitors. Outline maps of different regions are accompanied by commentary on regional variations and any notable local vocabulary. There is also a useful ‘Word-finder’, designed to help readers locate specific terms, phrases or vocabulary easily.
