English... its all the same language... or is it.

Recommended Posts

For a while now I have been getting the distinct impression you mob thing I talk funny. I mean dunno what ya issue is I speak perfect English. The Brits speak English, the Canadians speak English, the Americans speak English, the Scott's speak English and the Dutch, Portugese, Mexicans, Indians all speak English.... but it seems we are at times speaking in dialects all our own, well I am defo.

 

So here is a little activity to build a translator service... I mean I bet there are dialect differences in your own countries let alone across boarders. SO I will post up 3 picks and we will say what we call them. Will let it run for a while then we will add 4, 5, 6....etc. Everyone welcome to add them at any time... just keep the numbers going ....

Everything is the same as the Yankees. We just say: eh a lot up here and spell words in British English (you know, add the "U") :15_yum: 

There's only a couple of things we call by a different name that they do in the States.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
