GUEST,Dáithí BS: American English usages taking over Brit (481* d) RE: BS: American English usages taking over Brit 15 Oct 13


How about the US use of "alternate" to mean "alternative" - surely not the same thing at all. To step on alternate steps isn't the same as to step on alternative steps - which latter would mean some other ones, over there, perhaps.

Or what about "momentarily". Does that mean in a moment (US) or for a moment (UK)?
