Thread Name: Folklore: Bread Rolls
Subject: RE: Folklore: Bread Rolls
Also bread-bun, bun, oven-bottom cake, stottie, breadcake, plain teacake (so distinguished from just a "teacake" which,as your friend discovered, can mean the fruit variety) or cob (which can sometimes mean a round loaf about 9" across)

It's a subject in which meanings can change in quite a small distance, fraught with possibilities for looking a twit.
