SYNOPSIS:If you've ever traveled to England, you have experienced the phenomenon of "I thought they spoke English here." And although Americans and Britons do speak the same language, there are many differences--enough so that you may find yourself in a spot of trouble saying something you thought completely innocent. This book explores the difference in the two languages--American English and British English. For each British term, the author gives the American equivalent (or as close as he can get.) There is also an index to look up American terms and find the British equivalent. More than useful, it's informative and fun. And easy to use!
