Yesterday I wrote about the purse that I bought - a tiny 3 inches by 3 inches gorgeous thing.
The very astute fairyhedgehog made me realise that the purse I was referring to translated as something akin to a handbag to the wonderful bloggers from across the pond.
Which made me think about other words that perhaps gets lost in translation as it travels betwixt the ocean.
Pants is one.
And "across the pond" words that mean the same thing:
Whiteout - tippex
Eggplant - aubergine
Zuchinni - courgettes
Sidewalk - pavement
The letter z- the letter zed
Oh I'm sure there's more but it's gone past midnight and The Cat is eager to have the whole chair to herself...
