Ahhh, English. No other language in the world has been as bastardised as this one! And today’post is about where it all started – British Slang!

Also, English just steals words from other languages if they can’t find one that fits a certain description. I mean, there are tonnes of French, German and Spanish words which have been adopted into the English language.

That’s right, English took on a beastly form of it’s own wherever it was transported to. Some obvious examples include the Australian Slang (which I use all the time) and New Zealand expressions.

Of course, there is North American slang, South African slang and any other language that merges with English.

Sometimes we forget that the English Slang words are quite funny, humourous and downright hilarious.

As much as I like making fun of the Poms (that’s Australian slang for the English), I really love the dry witted, black and ironic English humour that graces our screens and eardrums.

British Slang Words, Swear Words, Curses, Phrases, Insults, Expressions, Colloquialisms & Expletives!

And today, to celebrate this, I’m going to provide a really crazy list of English Slang words to further broaden your English knowledge and education!
