12 posts in this topic

This will include som common words in use in the USA and translate to the queens english and some hummer. The format will be american-quèens english. Add more you wish.

Hôod-bonnet, the front of the car.

Trunk-hood, the back of the car. Right here there is a problem. They have their cars backwords. No wonder the brits drive on the wrong side of the road.

Is 'hummer' American for 'humour'? Because hummer isn't just a person who hums, nor the slang for the vehicle, where I come from.

Yeah one of the funniest has to be Fanny.... that certainly doesn't mean your backside over here LOL.

And also "suspenders". I hear of men wearing suspenders in the USA and it makes me giggle :)
