In a revealing new quick-guide to UK-based newspapers and tabloids for American readers, such beacons of the free press as The Irish Times and Edinburgh End, now widely available for subscription or free on the World Wide Web, culture writer J. K. Goutch in their latest Beat article ‘A Surrogate Cottager’ has provided an incisive look into the chest cavity of the British fourth estate, to see what makes it tick.
‘The main obstacle many American readers will encounter is the choice of vocabulary and use of words that simply do not exist in the American parlance,’ writes Goutch, a Londoner by birth. ‘For example, how often do you read about pensioners in Peoria, or surrogacy outside of Surrey, or cottaging in Poughkeepsie?’
Cottaging, as the article goes on to describe in its colorful glossary, is when a family goes on vacation in the countryside, and rents a small house to stay in.
Goutch can be reached for comment at (+44) 555-1428. That is their home phone number.
