An Anglophile is a person who admires England, its people, and its culture. Its antonym is Anglophobe. The word's roots come from the Latin Angli ""the English"", and Ancient Greek φίλος - philos, ""friend."" The word Anglophile was first published in 1864 by Charles Dickens in All the Year Round, when he described the Revue des Deux Mondes as ""an advanced and somewhat 'Anglophile' publication.""Though Anglophile in the strict sense refers to an affinity for the things, people, places and culture of England, it is sometimes used to refer to an affinity for the same attributes of the British Isles more generally; though the rarely used word Britophile is a more accurate term.
