Explanation of UK English slang

5


5 per visit - Virtual OK

I will help you understand any British slang/idiom/jargon that you might be wondering about. The English language has an abundance of slang, each area having their own vernacular and colloquialisms. I can help with American slang, too. ;) I also know a little bit of Cockney rhyming slang, which is weird, but fun.

Please let me know where you heard/read it, if you can. Any context will help me explain even better. Not necessary to make a request, of course.

***I can also give you a list of words that an American shouldn't say in polite company while visiting the UK (and an explanation of each.) Or a list of words with more common alternatives in England (elevator = lift, etc.)

***Alternatively, I can supply you with 5 random words or phrases just for fun.

Training & Qualifications


I'm from the States, but I lived in England for 10 years; love reading and words in general. I'm fairly literal and straightforward, so I like understanding figurative language as much as I can (so as not to be confused by it later).

P.S. I have a English husband I can ask if I get stumped. He also lived in Scotland for a little while.

Availability & Preferences


I try to respond ASAP. Usually within an hour during the day.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Janice Eckworth

I have a variety of interests and craft skills. I enjoy art, astronomy, baking, beading, calligraphy, crochet, drawing, etymology, genealogy, knitting, kumihimo, movies, nail art, origami, painting, ...piano, puzzles, quilting, reading, scrapbooking, sewing, and ukulele. (If you noticed that I ordered my list alphabetically, you can image the attention to detail I put into my projects.) I have been knitting for 8 years. I've made hats, socks, sweaters, and a variety of other projects. I've loved learning different techniques over the years. Knitting with a different color yarn in each hand is my current favorite. I know how to knit continental (aka picking) and English (throwing or flicking). I have seen 1700+ movies. I have made several services in the form of MOVIE LISTS. One of my favorite services is movie recommendations. I know how hard it can be to find something fun. I will not recommend anything I haven't seen; nor recommend something I wouldn't be willing to watch again. I'm also a parent of two Autistic boys (8 and 6). They are clever, happy little boys, so I'm very lucky. I also teach piano and ukulele lessons locally (and a few via videochat).show more
