What British People Say v’s What they really mean…

Whilst I was laughing at the compilation Buzzfeed so thoughtfully put together about my FAVORITE twitter account @SoVeryBritish I was reminded of THIS chart

What British People Say v’s What they really mean…

I love these things. Especially being Welsh where we get even more confusing and start using phrases like “I’ll be there now in a minute” (< I’m so guilty of this).

Buzzfeed also did 26 marvellous regional words we should all start using.

One thought on “What British People Say v’s What they really mean…”

  1. Hi Rachel. As a Yank, I enjoyed this very much. I love the BBC productions like Fawlty Towers and Are You Being Served, plus I read a lot of British authors.

    Although my ancestry is Norwegian/Swedish on one side and mostly English on the other, I do have some Welsh ancestors named Bowen.

    Thanks for scaring this up.

    All the best,
