An Anglophile

An Anglophile is someone who loves or admires England, its people, culture, language, and the many different accents it has. Even though the term “Anglophilia” generally means having a love for England, it is sometimeĀ used to mean having a love for the entire United Kingdom, including Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

An example of English:
In its strictest sense, “Anglophilia” refers to a love of England. The term Anglophilia refers to an individual’s appreciation of English history and traditional English culture (for example, William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Samuel Johnson, and Gilbert and Sullivan). The roots of the word come from Latin and Greek and mean “English” and “Friend.”


Love the English way of life:

Anglophiles who are drawn to “traditional” English culture also enjoy pop and rock music from England and other UK countries, British news and entertainment, British cars, and British contemporary culture in general. Anglophilia may also include affection for the British monarchy, British bureaucracy, British Empire nostalgia, and the English class system.
Accent and Language:


In English, Anglophiles may use British spellings instead of American ones, such as “color” instead of “color,” “center” instead of “center,” and “traveler” instead of “traveler.” In recent years, casual conversation and news reporting in the United States have increased the use of British English expressions. In both the United States and the United Kingdom, the usage, misinterpretation, and misuse of these expressions by Americans has become a topic of media interest.
