What words are different in American english and british english? write em down!
Color vs colour
Neighbor vs neighbour
Grey and gray.
Grey is the British version and is clearly the better way to spell it
Crisps and chips (Americans are wrong)
Biscuits are different, as are cookies
apartments vs flats
vacation vs holiday
sweater vs jumper
trunk vs boot
people have no idea what i mean when i say boot
not sure why the british people on here are trying to make something big about the way us “americans” pronounce things. like ok… two different countries. so duh. i still love england. even tho yall STILL fucking wrong.
Lmao you lot call a yoga pose “fanny” - meaning the downstairs area for a woman (immature, ik but i dont want to get in trouble)
No hard feelings but thats just wrong
I spell it both ways but typically grey
like i said before, two different countries. so nobody is going to pronounce all words the same.
Where did anyone call anyone wrong? Ive read the comments and I’m soo lost… I don’t she was calling anyone wrong she was stating that the word was used wrong in a weird way…
I think most of us are just joking around hahaha it isn’t a big deal to anyone but it’s just fun to talk about
i fixed it.
ik. i fixed it.
Pants for Americans and trousers for the British
Jam and jelly
fries vs chips
Crazy vs mental
Let me explain.
In The US,
If a baked flour piece is sweet, they call it Cookie
If a baked flour piece is salty, they call it Crackers.
Biscuit refers to a bread as in “Biscuits and Gravy”
In the UK,
all the baked flour pieces, no matter sweet or salty are known as Biscuits.
I don’t think “Biscuits” as in “Biscuits and Gravy” are consumed in the UK.
