Where can I find out the British equivalent for an American English word or phrase?
There are great books offering the British equivalents for American English expressions, and vice versa. You will also find equivalents listed in some dictionaries, especially those that may be sold in both the American and British markets. Often, Web sites offer lists or even translators (British-to-American and American-to-British dictionaries) or the equivalent in another variety of English. A great Web site is The Very Best of British which is subtitled The American's guide to speaking British.
