British English Words: Bangers

Post by SteelInferno on Wed Dec 03, 2014 1:05 am

Bangers is the UK informal name for sausages. One of the UK's traditional dishes is Bangers & Mash (sausages and mashed potato). The name bangers comes from the sound sausages make when they are being cooked without having been pierced (bang!).

E.g. Tonight we are having bangers and mash for dinner.

Bangers é o nome vulgar dado às salsichas em Inglês Britânico. Um dos pratos tradicionais do Reino Unido é Bangers & Mash (salsichas com puré de batata=mash). O nome bangers vem do som que as salsichas fazem ao ser cozinhadas em terem sido previamente picadas (bang!=pum!)

Ex: Tonight we are having bangers and mash for dinner.
