anglophile




If you’re a huge fan of England, you can call yourself an Anglophile. Anglophiles love English culture, accents, food, and people.

If you’re American but prefer British spellings of words, like colour and fibre, or have all the British monarchs memorized, or insist on ordering things like “bubble and squeak” when you go to restaurants, you’re an Anglophile, a person who loves all things English or British. The word first referred to French fans of England during the 1860s, its roots a combination of the Latin Angli, “the English” and the Greek philos, “loving.”
