Description

It has been said the United States and Great Britain are two countries divided by common language. Despite the overwhelming similarities between the two versions of English, there are many disparities including differences in punctuation, pronunciation and usage. Hippocrene's Language and Travel Guide to Britain exposes these distinctions, explores their derivations and leaves the reader well equipped to converse with the BRITS. British culture and history are examined in chapters covering subjects like royalty, the political system, rules for driving, holidays and customs and the British educational system. In addition to all this background, the author offers advice on planning for a trip to Britain and recommends many sights for exploring and relaxing when you get there. The book is filled with photographs and makes an ideal companion for the jet setter or armchair traveler.
