I have a confession to make. Ever since moving to the UK I’ve kept my ears open for the new words, expressions, idioms and quirky phrases that I haven’t heard before. I must say, I went even further, scribbling down these linguistic revelations during meetings, lectures or bus rides.
Every word, expression or an idiom is set in context in which I heard it and boosted by more examples for your enjoyment. While most of the examples are taken from reputable websites, I humbly invent some myself in the hope that they are right, so don’t take everything you see here as gospel, take it with a pinch of salt instead!
