A Dictionary of Brexit


The vote by the British people to leave the European Union has given rise to a plethora of new words such as 'Brexit'. 'Brexit' itself is now defined in the Oxford English dictionary as: (noun) A term for the potential departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

Below I've listed some of the other words and phrases - some common, some not so common - that have been invented to define what Brexit means. I've begun to link to examples where I can find them, but this will take some time so please bear with me. I discussed the Brexicon in a piece for the LSE's Brexit blog

I'll update this page as I find new words or they emerge (and will get around to putting them all into alphabetical order). Please email me with any suggestions, examples and links - timloliver@gmail.com
