English-speaking nations of the former British Empire may also use this slang to a certain extent, but also incorporate their own slang words to reflect their different cultures.
Slang is informal language sometimes peculiar to a particular social class or group and its use in Britain dates back to before the 16th century.
The language of slang, in common with the English language, is changing all the time; new words and phrases are being added and some are used so frequently by so many, they almost become mainstream.
British slang has been the subject of many books, including a seven volume dictionary published in 1889.
Lexicographer Eric Partridge published several works about British slang, most notably Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English, revised and edited by Paul Beale.
