As well as taking great pleasure in introducing obscure english words to all you poor linguistically challenged yanks, I have noticed that american stuff has started creeping into my way of writing. For example I just told Lori that a coupla pints of snakebite and I'm good. I am NOT good after a couple of pints of snakebite. In fact I'm frequently very bad in every sense. I'm sure this is an american thing I've picked up here.

Anyone else found themselves using foreign expressions or grammar?

You can't TELL a git to get hacked off, but a git could really hack you off. To hack a person of is to annoy them greatly or to pi$$ them off. I htink you are good on the chavs slappers and gits though! Very Happy

I use a lot of foreign words both American, British and sometimes Spanish depending on the situation.

And watch out for those chavs, they spread faster than STD's, well almost. Bad Grin

I find myself telling people that I'm 'gobsmacked'...Debbie Travis says it on t.v. all the time & I just love the way it sounds so I picked it up. You don't even have to look it up..you just know what it means...well at least I did, some of me friends aren't so bright. Rolling Eyes

Very strange thing about color, colour, favorite & favourite...Last year we were supposed to write it the American way-drop the u- (less confusion), this year my daughter got it wrong in spelling-back to the Canadian way. Wish they'd make make up their minds.

Perhaps Candy can explain it better...take off the suffix from the aforementioned word with and, depending where you're from, you'll get it...if not, you're probably better off Rolling Eyes

Does that word mean the same thing in the UK as it does in the US? Lily Allen has it in some of her songs and she's British. I assumed it meant the same thing....she has a dirty mouth. Laughing

Awesome!! Wink

I did find it a bit shocking when visiting Disney and a security guy asked to search my 'fanny pack'!!! A fanny over here in the UK means a ladies private parts!

Git - not very nice person, can also be called a plonker, tosser or w*nker I guess. Wink

Slapper - girl with loose knickers! Think Britney Spears, oh no perhaps not, she doesn't wear them.

Chav - think Britney Spears again, your equivalent of trailer trash, someone with not much money but has to have all the tacky designer gear, think Burberry.

If it's 'fanny' as in your butt, it means the same thing here...I can't really visualize it meaning anything else.

Yes, I found out about the "fanny pack" thing too. After 14 years of living in the US, I moved back here to Sweden. A few months later I took a trip to the UK and made a comment to my British friend about all the tourists with their "fanny packs". She became very red in the face and wondered what I meant, so I pointed one out to her and then she understood that it was those zipper pouch things that some people wear around their waists, mainly tourists. That word in British English does NOT refer to one's rear, butt, behind it refers to a ladies privates.

On the other hand the word "twatting" came up here and well if you drop the "ing" off that word it essentially means the same thing as "fanny" does in British English but in American English it is a gross slang term that mainly teenaged boys (and sadly some classless grown men) use. It's no wonder a few posters here wondered what that word meant. Laughing

I don't mean to offend anyone from either culture and I hope that I didn't. Wink

You were just explaining very nicely done. I am sure you didn't offend anyone.

I had to warn my daughter about thongs before she set off to Australia just incase she slapped anyone for mentioning them. Bad Grin
