    Ok british isn`t that hard to understand really, but this video was funny and actually was informative. Brits aren`t retards, just because americans and brits are different in certian ways doesn`t make either of us retards. And hello americans, we use intersections and Junctions! In city areas we use intersections,
    more onto the interstate and out in rurul areas we use junctions. Come on people don`t be so bitter. >-(

    It`s also funny how the British are known for being so proper, yet so many of these `slang` terms contrasted between our two dialects could actually still be considered quite proper on our side of the coin.

    Still can`t believe the term `intersection` is not part and parcel of their vernacular, to the point that he actually had to LOOK IT UP!

    I guess, at the very least, we now have heady sessions of heavy `stroking` to look forward to!

    Well Ravie, it was he who said it! As I mention above, why would the obscurity of this term (intersection) require his actually having to look it up if it was already part of your overall common usage? Are you divided into sub-dialects to a degree further than either of you are letting on?

    its just a word we don`t use
    he had to look it up because he is a "retard"

    Maybe not in it`s original sense but people use it as the meat BECAUSE it also means gay.

    "Pictures of the product are a popular joke in some Western countries due to additional meanings of the name. Faggots were used as the subject of an infamous 2004 radio advert by the UK supermarket chain Somerfield. This advert was subsequently deemed to have breached the rules on Good Taste, Decency and Offence to Public Feeling of the Advertising and Sponsorship Code, and was banned from future re-broadcast."

    there are so many things he had wrong. Jam is used in the USA.

    * In jelly, the fruit comes in the form of fruit juice.
    * In jam, the fruit comes in the form of fruit pulp or crushed fruit (and is less stiff than jelly as a result).
    * In preserves, the fruit comes in the form of chunks in a syrup or a jam.

    Also the chips/fries thing. It`s not know to a lot of people but crisp is us in the USA for chips made from corn and artificial potatoes flacks like pringles. Up in till the mid 1980 By law they could not be called chips(long story there).

    Part 2

    Yeah, this video is pretty good. In Australia, we use mostly British English though it was interesting to see which side we fell on for each term.

    He probably should have mentioned color/colour, favor/favour etc. as differences in spelling can also be very confusing.

    we don`t all talk like him! and if you wanna see roundabouts, come to basingstoke. we have hundreds. which is why i was laughing so much throughout the clip. oh and a faggot is also a load of sticks, usually place on a bonfire to help it burn better. or something like that...
    oh, and i have only ever used the word `bonnet` once, and that was because my friend dented hers by sitting on it.
    proud to be british. oh and if you americans wanna get really confused, look up welsh slang. hilarious.

    I`m not sure he`s knows his English that well...

    - We use the word intersection in Britain to mean junction.

    - When he says lorry means truck in US English, he actually means what americans call a semi (heh, semi has a very different meaning in UK English but I`ll leave you to look that up yourselves!)

    there are regional dialects and age factors to take into account too, which is why some people disagree with each other

    nothing factual the author said about UK English was untrue, where I live we always use Bonnet etc (though bonnet can also mean a type of hat - as in Easter Bonnet)

    anyway, whoever said it, i am british, i live in england and i can tell you for a fact that cigarettes are NOT known as faggots. sometimes Fags, but never faggots. you`re right about the meat thing though.

    we`re not retards. England pwns america.

    Woh! I didn`t think there would be this much of a debate about this link. I have posted the 2nd part but I`m waiting for IAB to put it up. Let me get one thing straight first of all. A faggot is a kind of meatball made out of all different bits of meat. A fag is a cigarette. Please do not confuse these two! BTW there`s no need to get into a fight over this link, just because someone speaks differently to you doesn`t make them a retard. I don`t call Americans retards because they play soccer not football or say chips instead of crisps.

    a junction is usually like 3 or more major roads crossing...while an intersection is only two roads crossing.
    also, i call jelly, jam sometimes. depends the mood i am in.
    haha, we dont pet animals, we stroke them...just like stroking a pole.

    Okay, so, this guy is supposedly from Northern England? It sounded to me like a fake British accent. Seriously. Can any of our Brit friends on here verify if it sounded consistently authentic? I heard all sorts of little indicators that he is American faking the accent, but I`m not a linguist, so, I may be hearing things.

    Of course, I`m a retard, too, so, there it is...

    I thought both 1 and 2 were informative, however there are some he missed. For instance:

    US - Mini-van ENG - People Carrier
    US - Camper ENG - Caravan

    That`s just 2 examples.

    There are also the instances where we say words differently. For instance:

    iPOD

    US - We pronounce the I long, the same way you would say I if you were talking about yourself.

    ENG - You say the I short. Like the way you say the i at the beginning of internal.

    Prius

    US - We say Pri like "Pree". Just like "Free"

    ENG - You say Pri like Pry.

    Somethings we say the same but spell differently. One example is:

    US - Tire ENG - Tyre

    There are many more of each type. I have learn a lot of them from the show Top Gear that comes from ENG.

    If you look closely, English is slowly developing into new languages between countries. I usually call ours American English.

    Even within the US there are tons of differences. I say root, and my boyfriend says route. I say car-mel and he says cara-mel. (my way sounds so much better)

    Some people say aunt, and some say ant (to mean aunt).

    There are plenty others.

    Besides that, most Americans for some reason can`t spell worth a crap. I was lucky I guess, and was taught to read by the time I was 3. The spelling came along with it.

    Chevylover54, I have never heard an iPod pronounced that way in England, it is always `eye-pod`

    dianne, to an extent you are right, the change in the languages will be slow though as some people will use both due to immersing themselves in the other`s culture. For instance in the UK, we call an off ramp a slip road, I recently heard someone use off ramp for the first time on the radio.

    Being Swedish, I have been exposed to british slang through school education, and american slang through other media. I found it quite interesting that I while I knew fanny meant butt, I have always associated the word to the british equivalent. It actually is rather confusing.

    As long as one has enough intelligence to listen to context, one should be able to figure out what the other is saying. If the power goes out, and my British roomate asks for a torch, I`m going to assume that she doesn`t want a lighter and newspapers, but a flashlight.

    So, the British are pretty retarded about naming things words that aren`t actually meant to be related to what they`re naming. I guess they just want to be different. Which is why they chose those silly accents.

    We invented the language as far as I`m concerned, that`s why it`s ENGLISH. The Americans deviated off the English language. I just find it interesting - I`m not sure why the hell some americans find it fun to call us retards for using certain words - I could call the americans retards but I don`t because they`re not.

    Anyway, useful clip. ^_^

    Although I`m English I still knew about most words like fanny and diaper and all that lot. It just depends what context you use it in. Like if I ask for a torch my American friend will know what I mean just like if he asks me for a flashlight. I`ve seen enough American movies to understand most of their slang.

    That was a pretty cool video, and I can see how it`d be pretty useful if you were traveling to England/America. (I know I wish I was familiar with English slang before I went over!!)

    However, I have to say this, because I`m kind of annoyed by it. Not everyone who is British is English!! Great Britain is comprised of Scotland, England and Wales! (This is directed at Americans because I`m sure there are a lot who don`t know this) So technically, there are 3 countries, each of who have their own dialects and different words! I`m sure there are some English people who`d look at you funny if you ordered Haggis with tatties and neeps. Just had to get that out there! It`d be cool if someone made a video with the differences in all of the UK. Now THAT could get confusing

    He`s from Birmingham. Or therabouts. Cut him some slack. The dialectal differences vary not just from city to city, but within British counties and small towns . Within a 10 mile radius of where i am on the right side of the sunny sunny Pennines, there`re 15 distinct regional forms. Get yer head around that one.

    Some people in America refer to the car trunk as the "boot", so I wasn`t surprised here.

    If Jell-O is "jelly" and jelly is "jam", what is jam?

    Words that I wtf`ed on: Bonnet, lorry, skip (seriously wtf?!), candy floss.

    "you americans r the retards
    who the hell do u think invented `ENGLISH` was it the English maybe, not you fudgein stupid tards who call your arse a fanny"

    Excuse me, but America has been separated from England for well over 200 years now, and I hate to break it to you, but language changes over time in general based on cultural events and other causes. Typically, just because the language itself is the same, variations can occur in different regions. Hell, even different parts of America have differing terms (take "y`all" for instance).

    I don`t see where someone is "retarded" for having different slang terms just because culture in their region affected language differently than in other regions. People call the language "English" and refer to the style Americans speak as "American English" anyways.

    Of course, if you can`t make an observation like that, then you could be retarded.

    The kid was right really, he got most stuff dead on. Although by "big cookies" he means like large cookies, Millies/BaskinRobins cookies etc, as opposed to the ones that come in a roll.

    It shouldnt be an arguement about who is best or whatever, the video was just explaining some word differences in British/American English, get over it guys.

    And there`s plenty of people with accents like his. For such a `small` country (compared with others), theres a lot of accents.

    US - We pronounce the I long, the same way you would say I if you were talking about yourself.

    ENG - You say the I short. Like the way you say the i at the beginning of internal.


    Um... no!!!

    We most certainly DON`T say `i`Pod!??!?!

    those are the UK terms that i am used to. faggot never means cigarette though. plus everyone i knows says ipod as eyepod, jam over here is BOTH preserves with bits and no bits. we only call cookies cookies when they have choc chips in them, otherwise they are biscuits. i have a few american mates, especially as im online alot and i have to say confusing them with english terms is funny :D

    you should try spotted dick lol (google is your firnd)

    my dad, who works with people from the UK on a regular basis told me a funny one.
    apparently, over there, to "knock someone up" means to stop buy their home in the morning, while here it means to get them pregnent

    it`s funny to see how our two languages have evolved enough that we can still communicate with eachother but just enough that some words can be compeltely different.

    What I find even more interesting is that our languages evolved in such a way that we can still communicate on a basic english level.

    I moved here from britain, and I had to learn the differences between the terms.

    I was terrified when, at the age of 8, I heard my friends mother use the term fanny repeatedly.

    If she ever visits Britain, she`s in for quite a shock. ;-)

    Some people commenting here are being harsh. "You british people have poo language" etc.

    First off, that guy was not British, he was English. Britain is not a country, it is several countries - namely England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Second, you might think our words are weird, but we could easily say the same about your words. Plus - maybe because Americans were originally English and Dutch people fleeing from religion and the accents intertwined - you have words like "gotten" and "ain`t", and say stuff like "off of" instead of just "off". That`s just bad English.

    But, at the end of the day, instead of being biased towards my own country, who you could say is also dumming down, due arguably to US influences like fast food and TV, I`m going to be mature and just say: tomato tomato.

    Ah, that doesn`t really work when you type it.

    britain is like actually an island, namely Great Britain
    which N. ireland is not a part
    northern ireland is a part of the united kingdom`s of great BRITAIN and ireland(which is now just northern island)

    from what i understand, correct me if i`m wrong,
    cockney is like instead of skittles they pronounce it like "ski-ulls" or the beatles is pronounced "bee-ulls". they like cut letters out of the words.... city = `ci-ee`

    `British`? Vs American slang? This guy needs to be shot. Appart from the 4 different geological areas of `Great Britain` (England, Scotland, Wales and NORTHERN Ireland), there are over 100 local dialects, each with their own slang (some such as Cumbrian Dialect are like a different language all together). Take heed people; when you`re talking about all 4 separate countries which make up Great Britian, by all means, call us British, but if not, refer to us as `English`, or `Scottish`, or `Welsh` or `NORTHERN Irish`. By doing this, you are less likely to piss alot of people off.

    The English people who hate him are northerners who have completely different accents to those of us in the south, though it is still true that there are many different accents in the south, like the perfect R.P. (`posh`)sounding one, the Cornwall one, the general London one (which is similar to R.P but a bit less proper), the South London/`ghetto`/black people one and the East London `Cockney` one. This guy is SO not roosterney, he`s more well spoken Londonish.

    Nobody mentioned the one where the American `bangs` is called a `fringe` over here. we only use the word bangs when we are talking about noises (or maybe when someone continually copulates)
