    Hi, I'm looking for help. I'm compiling an Uxbridge Dictionary of any terms related to schools, education etc. and I would appreciate any contributions here.

    For those not familiar with ISIHAC, you take a common word and give it a new/funny definition. For example;

    Logarithm: To record a piece of music
    Academy: A school for cads
    Quadrangle: Four people stealing cattle.

    If we contribute ideas, will we get a share in the royalties once you've published your dictionary?

    I put up (hopefully) humourous displays. I had a Late Arrivals board which needs updating. Late Arrivals are again taken from ISIHAC. Please welcome Mr & Mrs Ucatation and their son Ed. Okay, not that funny, but my students, 80% of them are EAL, like them.
