    The French are good for some things, I suppose.

    Cars, and occasionally music.

    Enoch was right.

    I meant in general- in most cases it was the British spelling/meaning that changed. For example, the word "football" originally referred to a sport somewhat like American football.

    French is okay, but I prefer Greek. It's the language of science, after all.

    French is so much better.

    Also, I prefer our Latin influences to Greek.
    I love you, Adam.

    Well I've got to admit, French does sound sexier.

    Also, I prefer our Latin influences to Greek.
    Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum viditur.

    I prefer Greek over Latin though.

    It means "whatever" or "anything".

    The translation of the sentence is: "Anything said in Latin sounds profound".

    Ohhkaaay.

    Northern England is the loverly place I'm from, and we say pants for "trousers", unless you're just TRYING to be posh. I think Jack might fall in the category. So yes, pants for me. Underwear DOES NOT EQUAL PANTS, it does in the south. I just laugh when I hear this.

    North: Dance
    South: Daaarrrnnce

    Generally, the more pompous and stereotyped pronunciations are from the south.
    I love you, Adam.

    I never actually knew you Northerners call them pants. To us in the south though, they're trousers, and underwear is pants.

    North: Dance
    South: Daaarrrnnce
    Who uses an 'r' in dance?

    Listen to someone with a Cardiff accent and tell me it sounds pompous.
