A Dictionary of Bristle

A Dictionary of Bristle

10th anniversary edition. New entries and citizenship test. Tangent's biggest selling local book. Perfect gift book for young and old. Harry Stoke and Vinny Green launched the Dictionary of Bristle in 2003 to celebrate the remarkable success of their thatbebristle website a hilarious spoof news page with a passing similarity to the Bristol Evening Post's thisisbristol website. At its peak, the website enjoyed astonishing success and the Dictionary was originally published to help readers understand the nuances of the Bristolian words and phrases. The website is long gone, but the Dictionary goes from strength to strength and sells particularly strongly at Christmas through supermarkets as well as the traditional booktrade and in gift shops. Tangent Books acquired the Dictionary from Broadcast books in 2009 and released a third edition. The updated fourth edition celebrates the 10th anniversary of the original Dictionary. The book is now accepted worldwide as the authoritative guide to speaking Bristolian and has been responsible for a whole new generation of Bristolians reclaiming their distinctive dialect. Within two years of the publication of the Dictionary of Bristle the Bristolian word 'lush' was added to the Oxford English Dictionary.
