What do you call these images?

Recommended Posts

After a mate of mine came back from USA, he was saying how everyone there called things differently to that he had grown up calling them.

So I decided to make this thread, in your post include your birth country and your answers in hidetags

There are only 20 pictures/text descrptions below.

Some of them are really obvious American words vs Uk words.

 

[hide]

1) Jumper/Sweater

2) Roundabout

3) Indicator (Turning Signal to americans i believe)

4) Boot (Trunk to americans)

5) Cracker

6) I'd say Shopping Mall (pronounced m-al rather than m-all) but most ukers would say shopping centre and americans shopping mall (m-all)

7) Flat/Apartment/Studio (flat being more british and apartment more american)

8) Mudflap? Tireguard?

9) This is very country biased. Uk uses tarmac, american uses asphalt; they are not the same material even though they are both derived from bitumen in oil. (Case a point being in uk roads are tarmac but you can get parts of your garden or roof asphalted and a lot of play grounds are asphalted.

10) Lift (elevator to americans)

11) Sweets (candy to americans)

12) Lolly (popsicle to americans)

13) I supposed you are aiming for fizzy drink in uk vs soda/pop in american. But thats a bit dated since msot uk kids reference drinks by brand these days in uk.

14) Bin (trash can to americans)

15) No idea where you are going with this one as its a porch in uk or us. If it didn;t have a roof it'd be a deck and if it had walls a conservatory.

16) Nappy vs Diaper

17) Torch vs Flashlight

18) Football vs Soccer

19) Prison vs Jail (although in technical terms its still a jail in uk. We have the prison system and you go to prison in the ambiguous sense. But they are still jail houses technically)

20) A tracksuit.

Not sure where you're going with that... I've heard (and used) both from each pair here.

"Pavement" isn't used to describe anything in particular, that is no more a footpath/sidewalk than a street. It could come up as walking on the paved area as opposed to walking on somebody's grass, though.

"Mail" is more common than "post" (except when referring to a post office), but neither will have anyone blinking in confusion.

"Shop" isn't typically used to describe large businesses, but "store" does fine except for the tiny places.

"Cab" typically comes from a generation or two before me, but "taxi" is pretty well universal even outside of English.

 

Works in Michigan, your mileage may vary. :thumbup:

To be fair, dialectical differences are at best a minor inconvenience to be cleared up with a simple "Sorry, what?" and a quick rephrasing.

I found myself doing that a lot just after moving to uni because in speech i naturally use the norfolk dialect word "shew" in placed of "showed"

Its a roundabout... the city in which I live should be nicknamed the roundabout capital of the world. Literally, time magazine has published an article about us because we've built so many. Newsweek says we've built more than 60... and I can think of at least 2 that have been built since then.

We're also so awesome that we're hosting the International Roundabout Conference.
