The Septic's Companion | British Slang Dictionary

A British slang dictionary with audio pronunciations


The Septic's Companion is an A-to-Zed dictionary of British Slang words and phrases, written by a Scotsman living in America. You may know it better by the title it had for the previous ten years, "The English-to-American Dictionary". The online dictionary is all free; the book contains all that and more riveting British stuff.

I mentioned the book, right? It's a lot more portable than the website, so you can enjoy it in places your iPad won't go.
