Wait, I didn't think that dairy frozen products got icy pole status, they remain ice creams.

Yep, same here. I better be careful in the US later this month. I hate it when people smoke within 'noseshot' (we have earshot, why not noseshot?) of me and I better be careful not to mutter things about "bloody fags".

I love this thread here. Very amusing and informative.

SOmeone asked about grits...Ground hominy (a form of dry corn) is all they are. I prefer to add butter and sugar to them because they are bland when eaten plain. Definitely a Southern staple.

I find that accents are disappearing fast in this region (Texas), especially in the cities. As populations come more in contact with one another it is inevitable that accents disappear, and the South is increasingly an urban area and Texas is one of the most urban states in the country.

I have a hard time believing that there is one correct way to speak a language especially English. Historically it is a language that absorbs words from various other languages with general ease. It has undergone so many evolutions that no one can say they speak proper English and I do not think there ever was a proper English. To me, that is the most fascinating thing about language.

That being said, biscuits are biscuits and cookies are cookies...Never the twain shall meet.

You'd think I would've noticed this after 7.5 years.
ICE BLOCKS! That's them! All watery icy things...not necessarily on a stick thanks Axver, I forgot what they were called lol

To me:

If it's in a cone or one of those plastic tubs: ice cream.

If it's on a stick: ice block.

I stand by that meaning and anyone who says differently is wrong.

Definitely not like cous cous. I would say it is closer to things like Cream of Wheat or Malt o Meal.

... OK. I'm going to have to try this when I'm over there. Trying to imagine something to compare it to ...

Commonwealth English, i.e. English from England! Or, to be perfectly honest, anything that isn't American English. It's one thing to vary language. It's quite another to just spell and define words wrong. BUT! I won't get annoyed or judgemental about it while I'm there, I'll just have fun with it. Maybe I'll tell people that in Australia, blue refers to red.

Quote:

*puts a big red 'x' by that comment* Biscuits = cookies.

Another question: what's with Americans calling the main course an entrée? An entrée is the light course BEFORE the mains!
