A Dictonary of Bristle by Harry Stoke & Vinny Green
Tangent's biggest selling local book is the perfect gift book for young and old and is accepted worldwide as the authoritative guide to speaking Bristolian. Within two years of the publication of A Dictionary of Bristle the Bristolian word 'lush' was added to the Oxford English Dictionary. It has been responsible for a whole new generation of Bristolians reclaiming their distinctive dialect.
Now in the year of its tenth anniversary, a fourth edition has been released. With a completely revised, updated, and expanded dictionary and handy phrasebook section, with more than 50 new dictionary entries, numerous additional phrases, and more than 300 updated descriptions, this popular book has been updated for the current day.
In addition to all of that they have developed a new Bristolian Citizenship Test, for those wanting to relocate to the city from elsewhere, and if that wasn't enough, they've also crammed in a handy timewasting Bristolian version of a classic spotter game, called, Ark At Ee!
