Description

In this brilliant transatlantic survival guide, Erin Moore examines the key differences between the British and the Americans through their language. You'll discover why Americans give - and take - so many bloody compliments and never, ever say `shall' (well hardly ever), as well as what the British really mean when they say `proper', why they believe it is better to be bright than clever and how the word sorry has at least eight different meanings for them.
