    Default DIFFERENT WORDS WE USE ....FOR THE SAME THINGS!

    So what words do you use that you know others say different.

    For example .......


    Pictures ......movies ........cinema


    Knickers .......pants


    Tomato sauce .......ketchup


    Lounge ........living room


    To be made redundant .........laid off


    Jacket potato ..........baked potato


    Jumper ............ Sweater


    Bottom .......bum .........ass ...........butt .........rear end


    Toilet .......... Loo ......... Bog


    I'm sure you can think of more ..... Do you use slang words?

    Don't know, but I often have my husband of almost 20 years stare at me and tell me he has no idea what I am saying! I was a scale E brat which pretty much messes up my dialect and accent so depending on where I am and who I am talking to my words will change without me even being aware of it. I now have 3 scale E brats of my own, so they will sound like they speak another language half the time too haha.

    Can't think of any specific words right now though other than scaffy. Taken me years and years and years to start to habitually call them bin men.

    lol, yes and 'over by here' and 'is it?' at the end of every sentence - well not so much now as I've lived here for 24 years.
