    1. Generally a good examination of typically English words Disappointed by the editor not spotting Port Talbot being classed as an English town when it s actually in Wales though.

    2. Unlike the David Crystal version, this is a book about words that relate to English people and culture.Goes from irony to sarcasm, encompasses eccentric and quaint and nudges up against queues and jobsworths Has some grumbling and a jolly time before reaching for the toast.Very good, and well worth a read
