Weekly Blog No 33 – British Slang 

I have been in Canada 6 years, yet I haven’t lost my British slang. In fact I have given a few Canadians a whole new dictionary of words. Being a Brit in Canada, it took a while just getting around the Canadian vocabulary so I can only imagine how Canadians seem to be confused with our slang words.

I thought I would provide a list of words and there meanings.

  1. Shambles – Plan gone wrong
  2. Loo – Toilet
  3. Do – Party
  4. Plastered – Drunk
  5. Her’s majesty pleasure – Prison
  6. Up the duff – Pregnant
  7. Nosh – Food
  8. Bees and Knees – Awesome
  9. Kip – Sleep
  10. Gutted – Devastated
  11. Starkers – Completely naked
  12. Bottle – Courage
  13. Doddle – Easy
  14. Ta – Thanks
  15. Off your trolley – Nuts, crazy or mad
  16. Posh – High class
  17. Full of beans – Lots of energy
  18. Dodgy – Not to be trusted
  19. Give us a bell – Call me
  20. A flick – A movie 
  21. Pins – Legs 
  22. Afters – Dessert
  23. Moggy – Cat
  24. Mucker – Pal
  25. Parky – Chilly 
  26. Telly – Television
  27. Tea – Dinner
  28. Pint – Beer
  29. Fit – Hot looking person
  30. Dogs breakfast – A mess 

There is hundreds of words, far to many to list, however I would love to know your thoughts.

    Love this list. One of the words I hear from Brits is “brilliant”. It seems to run a gamut of meanings from very nice to wow. Jo @ Let’s Face the Music
