Description
One need never be flummoxed again. From "chips" and "crumbs" to "spending a penny," here is an indispensable guide to surviving and thriving in the tricky byways of the English language as the English use it. This guide uncovers the meanings and probable sources behind more than 100 words and phrases of the British lexicon that you may or may not have encountered, including: all mouth and trousers, by hook or by crook, gazump, gobsmacked, in a nutshell, sleeping policeman, and that inconstant consonant of the title, zed.
