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 fascinating how this breaks down on a “where did you take this word from” axis. Lots of Italian and Latin American words on the left side, and bolshy right in the middle of the right side.

American here, I knew bolshy, yob and korma. Thank you clockwork orange, Indian restaurants, and Slade.
