Hi Folks -

A question: What is the difference between a steak burger and an hamburger ie in American parlance? Also, is a franfurter a hot dog or a Vienna? In UK English, the engine cover is called the bonnet, in the US it's the hood, the boot aka the trunk. Car brakes: here we go: in the UK brake discs but in the US called rotors. All quite confusing!

Does anybody else have any other ideas?

Just a Holiday Banter (aka banter: general talk that nothing in particular is forthcoming...)

Happy Holidays!

Obviously everything mentioned in English is only correct when it is mentioned by the English.
The front engine cover is the Bonnet and not a Hood, the Boot is the Boot and not a Trunk.
A Gallon is a Gallon and not something a bit smaller.
The correct spelling of Colour and Tyre are Colour and Tyre.

Don't you just love banter :grin:

Happy New Year :x
