This is a right royal comedy of errors. Hidden within normal English is a separate language still spoken by those born with silver spoons in their mouths. It's called Posh. A word of English can be spelt the same but mean something completely different in Posh. If you say the word 'Mention' in English, people will understand 'Remark upon'; but in Posh this means a large house. Say 'Ace' and speakers ofPosh will think you are referring to a cold thing one's butler puts in one's G&T.
This book will help you learn Posh, often with side-splitting consequences. To aid rapid mastery, helpful examples of the various words in the dictionary are given in context.
These helpful examples collectively add up to a story within the dictionary - Incorporating the Fall and Rise of the Pails-Hurtingseaux Family - the sorry saga of riches, ruin and redemption that this book really is.
