Screaming at this list of “most American” and “most British” words (“Pus” is percent of US people who recognize the word, “Puk” is percent of UK people)


@prehensile It's pretty funny that most of the words on the left are loanwords from other languages, and most of the words on the right are English slang. (And I bet more people in the US would recognize 'kerbside' if they'd spelled it 'curbside', pronounced the same.)
