‘The Dictionary of Posh’ 

In stock


The Dictionary of Posh serves as an essential guide to the (ab)use of many English words by the decidedly up-market and the resultant and endangered language they speak: Posh. This is a right royal comedy of errors. Hidden within normal English is a separate language still spoken by those born with silver spoons in their mouths. It s called Posh. A word of English can be spelt the same but mean something completely different in Posh. If you say the word Mention in English, people will understand Remark upon ; but in Posh this means a large house. Say Ace and speakers of Posh will think you are referring to a cold thing one s butler puts in a G&T. This book will help you learn Posh, often with side-splitting consequences. To aid rapid mastery, helpful examples of the various words in the dictionary are given in context. These helpful examples collectively add up to a story within the dictionary – the Fall and Rise of the Pails-Hurtingseaux Family – the sorry saga of riches, ruin and redemption that this book really is.
