This book is intended for Americans and Britons who want to understand each other better, and for foreign students of either American or British English who want to familiarise (or familiarize) themselves with the other main variety of the language. According to George Bernard Shaw, the United States and England are two great nations separated by a common tongue. In fact, most of the time the two peoples understand each other fairly well, or think they do. The accent is different, of course, but it presents no more of a barrier than any regional accent would. Differences in grammar, syntax and spelling are relatively minor. The main differences, and they are huge, are lexical and cultural.This state of affairs is reflected in the structure and content of the present book, which makes no pretence (or pretense) of being exhaustive, but which does try to be comprehensive. Short initial chapters outline the historical background and the differences in pronunciation, spelling and grammar. The main part of the book, however, consists of a dictionary of British vocabulary and cultural references which someone from the United States might have trouble understanding, and of a dictionary of American vocabulary and cultural references that might present problems to someone from the British Isles. As the book is not aimed at academics, but at laymen (or laypersons) who are curious about language, phonetic differences are shown, when necessary, by a figured pronunciation. The A to Zed section is written to be read by Americans, the A to Zee section by Britons. Finally, a number of older terms have been retained in both sections of the dictionary for the benefit of the small number of Americans and Britons who happen to be complete novices in the study of English as a foreign language.
