NH Dave BS: Anglicisms (41) RE: BS: Anglicisms 04 Dec 06


While these aren't exactly Anglicisms, take a look at Jackspeak, a dictionary of British naval usage compiled by Capt, Ret. Dr. Rick Jolly, who may have been the only serving man decorated by both sides following the Falkland War, for his actions saving both British and Argentine forces at his field hospital. Jackspeak is available from this web site, and is a good buy no matter how much you have to pay for postage. Americans might note that in most cases postage is less than VAT, so there is some savings there.
