American Words...

#1
I love the US, and I like (most) Americans that I've met, but some of the words they come out with...

On TV recently I've heard:

  • Adventuresome
  • Musicality
  • Burglarising (my personal favourite - will they follow it up with 'smugglerising'?)

Got any you want to add to the list?

misunderestimated - I think that was Pres Bush. But he did a few if i remember correctly.

Somebody at work 'diarized' an appointment the other day. Apparently it means to put an appointment in the diary.

I think I may just 'ostracize' him. That means I am going to put him in an ostrich.

Fags and butts are linked in both languages - but with totally different meanings.

And I absofuckinglutely detest the US use of booty.

Oh i had forgot about fags. Years ago remember asking some one in a Bar in Miami could i bum a fag. Funny looks all round before realising what i said.

Should we not be talking about American woyrds?

Not a word but a phrase "Who would have thunk it".

Discuss. But some how I think Shakespeare would have approved.
