    Ever get confused by local dialect or regional slang?

    Well if you happen to reside in the USofA or the UK,
    you could benefit from this>>>>

    The American-British + British-American Dictionary

    My mate (American) pointed me to it...
    he says it helps him understand what us brits mean by some of our "weird" language.

    It's useful no matter which side of the pond you are from.

    Did many of you know these?....

    Faucet = Tap
    Flatware = Cutlery
    Ackers = Money

    Anyway, even if you did, there's loads of translations there..
    So when that post uses a word you've never heard of...
    try looking there......... ;)
