GUEST,Nancy BS: British/American cultural differences. (130* d) RE: BS: British/American cultural differences. 09 Feb 00

Well........I heard those Brits call a chin a "pecker" and it's not uncommon for one to say "keep yer pecker up!" Also, THEY call pants trousers, and pants over there are what WE call underpants. Hmmmm, when my husband and I were in Australia (off to another geography!) during the Worlds Cup we said we were "rooting" on the couch for Australians to win. We learned later what "rooting' was there:) Not "Yeh, go team go!" Nancy
