Stone= 14 pounds. I had heard it before but forgot about it. The other day the young lady who was doing my nails had told me she had recently lost 3 stones. I looked puzzled, and she told me it was a weight term. Oh!
Don’t use pronouns- I don’t know if everyone here is picky about this but I know they do not like for you to use a pronoun instead of the name or word it is. For instance, my friend at church, told me she heard me talking about Kent and saying “he” but I should have used his proper name or the term “my husband”.
Darling, Love- Surprising to me, they don’t mind being called and using “darling” and “love” when speaking to one another. I like it, but I know there are those females back home who would be offended. Apparently, “darling” is said more in Scotland and “love” is used more in England.
They pronounce words differently. I think they pronounce them more phonetically than we do. For instance we say pita (pee-tuh) and they say pit-tuh. Debris for us is duh-bree and I heard on the radio the other day duh-bris. I still can’t understand some especially with the heavy brogue but I am sure they have the same problem with me!
