    EFL dictionary of football on UsingEnglish

    Hi Everyone (students and teachers)


    Starting tomorrow, UsingEnglish.com will be introducing an A to Z of football vocabulary for people who will be watching and reading about the World Cup. The finished version will be offered on the site and as a PDF later on, but first we would like people’s help as we post it bit by bit. Feedback we would like would include:
    • Pointing out which explanations which are inaccurate or not clear
    • Suggestions for better explanation
    • Example sentences (your own or found online)
    • Other things starting with those letters that we should include
    • Things that aren’t useful and we should leave out
    • Suggestions for other information that we should include, for example grammatical information and typical mistakes


    Things we are thinking of including are:
    • - People
    • - Objects
    • - Nicknames
    • - Clichés
    • - Some cultural information

    And anything else that people following football in English might find difficult to understand

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give us, and hope you find the dictionary (here and the finished version) both useful and fun

    All the best

    Alex (regular UsingEnglish.com writer)

    Suprised at the lack of comments, because I keep on finding mistakes and things that are not so clear!
