Hiya, after reading Mattcass post when he talked about his cheese pieces.

That is a cheese sand which in England. It got me thinking about different regional words and wondered what you use that are different.

I when I moved to England I went to a butchers and asked for gammon. Gammon in Scotland is cooked ham. The butcher obviously gave me a gammon joint confusing me as I wanted cooked ham, gammon to me lol.

When I met my mother in law she called me canny. I was so upset as in Scotland it means mean with money but here is the north east it is nice or sweet!!

Any stories?

And right back at you ! Wicked means very rather than good, bangs are a fringe ?!'

What:) Wicked means very..oh wait, yeah, that is our teen slang, saying the opposite of something, like "That's bad" Is really outstandingly great!

Bands are hair that is cut straight across the forehead. You call them "fringe"? Yours makes more sense:)

What do I say that sounds odd?
