It has been said that Britain and America are two countries forever divided by a common language. It should also be said that neither Britain nor America are actually countries; but you know the saying refers to the U.K. and the U.S. Differences in the meanings of words in British English and American English can cause confusion on both sides of the pond, so Bigstock blog posted a helpful list of twenty words that you should learn. For example, if you are in England and you want American potato chips, ask for potato crisps. If you say chips, you'll be given fries. If you ask for a biscuit, don't put gravy on it, because it will be a cookie. What others would you add? -via the Presurfer
