Talking of babies, what's US-speak for a dummy: the teat-like thing you put in a baby's mouth for them to suck upon. Don't think they are popular here anymore. I had an all-rubber one when I was ltttle. I secretly still enjoyed it at night until I was seven years old. But don't tell anyone.

@Branwen, where I live (mid-Atlantic region of US) a pacifier is more commonly known as a 'binky'.

@whatjushappen

well if the street were in any way on an incline, you could go to the top and the bottom Wink

Ireland, yes that the non-attached island to the left of the UK, they have a different accent there Laughing Wink

however, you are right in that Irish directions are somewhat amusing (apologies to any Irish), my favourite is the "see that left turn, well you don't want that, you want the right one instead"

Derived from Robert Peel, the founder of the (London) Metropolitan Police. As was "peeler". Both rarely used nowadays.

In some parts of Northern England, the Police are known as 'Dibble' after Officer Dibble in the US cartoon Top Cat.

Confusingly, the BBC used to list Top Cat as Boss Cat, because they didn't want to give free advertising to the cat food of the same name.

I heard that in the UK, the 1st floor of a building is actually the 2nd floor. The floor on the very bottom is called something like the “Ground Floor”. Is this correct?

Also, do hotels in Canada, UK and Australia leave certain floors out? In Las Vegas it’s not uncommon for the hotel/casino to skip floors, like you won’t find a 13th floor because people say it’s unlucky…..

Here's another one...a flashlight is called a torch.

Oh, and you guys over there have a weird name for band-aids too(the thing you put on small cuts), but I can't remember what it is at the moment.

I was out working at a kids' camp a few years ago (we have a lot of foreign staff every year) and one of the brits needed a band-aid but we had no idea what she was talking about until she described it. It was quite amusing.

I have heard Brits talk about living in a 'flat' which I have always assumed is the same at the USA's apartments. True?

@CO - sticking plaster?

I understand the first Harry Potter book was called "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" in the UK but had to be changed to "Harry Potter and the Alchemist's Stone" because Americans didn't know they were the same thing.

Well you can't travel in a caravan, whilst it is moving, that would be illegal. Wink

Having never driven a motorhome, I don't know.


As for the 1st floor thing - the floor you walk in on is called the Ground Floor, because it is at ground level, then the next floor is called the 1st, because it's the 1st floor Wink Sometimes you get a missing 13th floor, all depends who owns the building.

Re the word "nork" - true blue Aussie here, never heard that expression afore?
Off to get my dummy (or plug) and have a sulk in the corner.
We say 'an old bomb' for a clapped out car! (figure that out?) Laughing
And when really tired we say we are buggered, which is rude I guess.

A hilarious mixup comes from years ago, when a Pommy bloke said he was going to 'knock up' his mate. His Yank friend had a fit - he thought the Pommy bloke was going to get his mate pregnant!

So a Pommy is English (we are not sure why, there are different explanations)
A bloke is a man
A Yank is someone from America. (again I have no idea where it came from).
And a mate is a friend, either male or female these days.
No Aussie dares call a woman a 'sheila' nowadays!!!! If he did he would suffer!!

That's it, Titania...but regarding Harry Potter, I'm pretty sure we have 'the Philosopher's stone' as well. I think it was supposed to be called the Alchemist's stone but then changed to Philosopher...I could be wrong on that though.

I think the word your looking for is Elastoplast - like band-aid its a brand name that stuck.

What else? Flat is what we Brits call a US apartment, as for the clapped out car, an old banger.

Correctly spoken 'standard' English is known as the Queen's English.

Yes in the UK the floor at ground level is the ground floor. The full title of the next floor is "first floor above ground", but few know that and nobody uses it.

Germany is confusing. There they have no standard. If you get in a lift, the ground floor might be 1 or 0 or, (IIRC) E or K.

ETA: so would Americans know what a "sticking plaster", or just "plaster" was? That's what I would tend to call it, rather than a brand name (we have both bandaid and elastoplast in the UK.)

The book was published and filmed as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Apparently the film was retitled Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone in the US.
