Annoying Anglocreep

So the irritation is mutual! We’ve reported several times on Americanisms in British English in this blog, but if you want to read on the increase of British expressions in American English (toff, cheers, brilliant, loo), take a look at this article in the online New York Times: Americans are barmy over Britishism.

With thanks to Bob Ackerman (an American in the UK), as usual.
