The Mrs called to ask about language across the pond. Yes, I almost blew coffee on the computer screen! LOL! Trainers aka sneakers here; boot, bonnet, and the kicker was, knock me up in the morning!!
Different phraseology makes this planet fun. We have idioms here in the USA that are divided by the compass. An example, the word soda. Some refer to it as pop as in soda pop; in the south, everything is a "Coke", you ask for soda in Boston, that is exactly what you get, club soda.
Enjoy the day folks. Hunkering down for the cold weather.
That will keep the pecker up. In England you can say that in polite society. It is like vim and vigor :) I asked my English friend if you see many men wearing suspenders. She about died laughing. I should have said braces. Suspenders are garter belts :)

Add to that [sneakers - trainers= runners.

we never say 'I'll fix you a sandwich'
we say I'll make you a sandwich..

also

I never understood USA phrase..
when someone is niffed with another and they say..
anyway,
'I COULD CARE LESS'

surely it should mean
'I *couldn't* care less'

but never fear

we over here have a similar one..
if someone says.

'O. I hope he'll be ok'

we say'

'There's a fear of him'

when I think it should more
accurately be

'There's NO fear of him'

and to give you a laugh,
if we speak about someone who is say.. well off
if a person said 'he has only one car now'

Someone else might add

'Hmm, there's a fear of his @rse' lol

short for >

'Don't pity him,

he already doesn't want for anything'...

You have kept me in stitches all day with the differences in words. I do have to say I am a little hesitant to use certain words for fear that those to will be miss understood. LOL I would hate to think what I just stated, "kept me in stitches" would mean something like I need stitches put in my clothes because I run around naked or something!!!! LOL
Wow, what fun conversations! Thanks All!

Oddly enough, we say that too. Or 'in tucks' is a favourite
expression of mine...

I wish I had a pound for every time someone asked me to say 'tomarto'
in the States, but it was all in fun.(you say tom-a-to, we say
tom-ar-to)

Thanks for being such a good sport BE....:)

May I have a word,{{{ Cuz El }}}
This weekend I took a trip to historic England
http://www.pilotguides.com/tv_shows/globe_tre...
Included was a brief bit of a street presenter relating that Strawberry Fields was a Salvation Army children's home in Liverpool, England where John Lennon often played as a child. The Salvation Army band was a catalyst at that age to want to be in a band.
And a brief bit and scene about Stonehenge along the way to Glastonbury.
I have also seen (twice) a different episode of this program pertaining visits to Scotland, Wales, and England. I learned about shin-kicking contests! OUCH!!! Makes me wince.
{{{Cuz Luke}}}....spent a pleasant hour on that site too....
I am familiar with this as occasionely I watch Lonely Planet,
where Ian Wright hosts...exceptionally well done.
As for Strawberry Fields..would you believe I have never seen it performed...until today...even though one of my favourites of
the Beatles songs. On a visit to Liverpool we passed Strawberry Fields, we were on a tour bus which had taken us to John Lennon's
home, or rather, his aunt and uncle's home where he grew up....
very emotional...we also visited Paul McCartney's house, where his father raised him and his brother.
I think I will pass on the shin-kicking contests don't you?!
Definately.
The link is a keeper, and thanks so much for posting it.

Fortunately the newspaper he worked for made up a little of the difference.
The annoying thing was, the Maxwell Brothers were granted Legal
Aid at the taxpayers expense....
Like an idiot I found it sad that RW paid for it with his life.
i was wondering if some of the laws are different from here ....

Hey Sweet Cheeks .. long time no see. Yes Falcon has popped in a bit lately, after taking something of a sabbatical from this site .... so we'll let him know to come a-looking for you.

How about you ... do you plan to spend any time in the forum or not?
