    Most of these aren't slang. Some are accepted international English words. And others, like Kirk, are in other languages Scots/Ingis (depending on preference) and are used officially.
    Indeed. Suppose some of these are meant to be slang but are used internationally & across the Atlantic either through the use of them within British movie crossing Atlantic or by any other means. Such as the word "mate" is still seen as more of a British, but is hardly used in USA. In the same way, "pal" often seen as used by American has crossed the Atlantic & can be used, if not often, by some Brits, as well.

    I deleted all the Scottish slangs out of it, but I suppose, some still remained within the list. Some of Scottish words are widely used all over the country such as "butty", meaning "sandwich" can be heard all over the country as "chip butty" & of course "wee" meaning "little" is widely used by people around the country & of course "lass" for "girl"

    Seeing your location as UK, it's wonder why aren't you English :rolleyes: & of course, if you prefer being called as either Scottish or something else, then I presume, you can be still referred as BRITISH though

    the OP referred to british slang, not regional (english) slang.

    im sure the UKPS would be happy to inform you of the "technicalities".

    im sure you advocate renaming the country to the UQ of GB and NI as its not a kingdom but a queendom?

    Indeed but ANYONE who's got British passport is called British

    However, it's ENGLISH that's from England, SCOTTISH from Scotland, WELSH from Wales & IRISH from Ireland, if they prefer being too specific

    You could be considered British, as far as you've British passport, however, seeing you as English/Scottish/Welsh/Irish, as well, would depend on your personal preference, I would say

    interesting you speak of specifics and then go on to talk about the irish. they havent been a constituent part of the UK since 1922.

    my point is preference is irrelevant.

    Well, may be you prefer being called "Northern Irish" in that case just as Scottish or English or Welsh, but then again, I presume even you have BRITISH passport & that quite makes you British, I would've thought :rolleyes:
