Words You Hate From Other Countries

Fri Mar 07, 2008 4:18 pm

This is a fun thing (hopefully)

As the title suggests, words have to be from any Country but your own, with a brief description of why...

As for me, I'm plugging for America......  bigthumbsup 

Awesome. Most obnoxious word ever

Dames/Broads That's a terrible way to refer to the cuddliest people alive.

Well it's actually an Italian word - named I believe after Amerigo Vespucci, (Sp?) an Italian cartographer who discovered some of the continent(s) and therefore it was named in his honor.

Words I hate: 'Foken' - common among the young South Westerly chavs who appear to have mastered an language only understandable by their own kind, otherwise known as complete bullshit.

Do you realize how many Americans don't know what it means to queue up? Here, it's always referred to as "line up."

Hi ACM. So if you were in a shop or a Post Office you would join the line? But, if you were in waiting for clearance to taxi to the active runway, would you still join the line or a queue? Not taking the P. Seriously asking.

I agree with Mark that it is pretty much always referred to as a "line" here. A good example would be when people line up hours in advance outside stores for big Christmas sales or new product releases. It is usually reported that "people were lined up for blocks" or "people have been waiting in line for 8 hours".

When I have been on commercial flights the comments by the pilots are usually more like "we are number 3 for takeoff".

The only process off the top of my head that I have heard referred to as a queue in the US would be lines for Amusement park rides. These are the areas that you stand to wait for the ride and they snake back in forth. It is a good way to get a large amount of people in an orderly line in a small area.

I really do like many Brit words like "nutter", "randy", "shite", "arse", "minge", and "draughts". I love "kappa slappa" although I don't know how common it is. I'm going to form a band with that name.

For some reason I dislike "nappy", "advert", "nosh up", "dustbin", "macintosh". I never have heard "spot on" until a.net and I have grown to despise it like I would a venereal disease.

I have an ex boss who spent a few years with BA and commuted back and forth. Whenever he is around anyone British he all of the sudden has a cheasy British accent and uses their terms. I would always feel like shoving his head in the "loo" for being such a poser.

Oh, yeah. I had a roomate from Kenya for a while and he would call the billiard balls spots and stripes which I mildly disliked but grew to like. I imagine thats a brit thing as well from Kenya being a red country.

I dislike "Genglish" words, some combination of English and German, what some people without a real knowledge of English think is English. Some even made their way outsiode.

Like "Handy" which is a cellphone / mobile phone.

Most idiotic is German Rail with their "Service Points" or "McClean" for the toilets. "John" is much better than that, right, John?

Not just us. Australians and Kiwis too.

The etymology of it is quite fascinating. It all stemmed from a group of Britons and Aussies who went on a trip to the United States. They hit the bars deciding to get as drunk as possible. Unfortunately for them, they found that American beer tastes like piss, and is about as strong as piss. In the absence of anything better in the entire country, they had to force themselves to drink 26 pints each in order to get moderately tipsy. Upon returning to Blighty, they regaled everyone with this story of dreadful American beer, and having to drink 26 pints of the stuff which made them piss a lot.

As a result, the word entered the English lexicon, to describe drinking huge quantities (getting pissed) of appalling beer (weak as piss) whilst at the same time laughing at our primitive transatlantic cousins (taking the piss).

I trust you are now fully enlightened on the matter.  Wink

Even though this is more of an American word, I hate the word veggies. I do not know why, but I find it rather dumb. Just call them vegetables! To me, it is trying to make them seem less "evil", since Americans tend to avoid eating vegetables like it is the plague, or at least that is what I reckon.

As a Brit living in the states, one of the most annoying things for me.. and this is more prevalent in the south I believe, is when you get the response to a thankyou as 'mmhmm!' instead of 'you're welcome' or 'that's alright'.
The first few times I had americans 'mmhmm'ing me in response to an expression of gratitude I found it extremely rude although I said nothing.. I now realise that is in fact a form of informal 'you're welcome'. It still annoys me though.

Other examples might include the pronounciation of words like 'tuesday', 'news', 'deuce' which come out as 'toozday', 'nooz' and 'doose'. Pah.. and the last thing, americans inability to pronounce the letter T in a word. I've been listening to people call me 'Pee-der' instead of Peter for the last 2 years and have begun to follow suit to help them understand me.. Oh, and one more! I keep hearing americans pronounce the word 'height' as though it has 'th' on the end, like hieghth.. baffles me.

One thing which annoyed me in England was people saying mate to everyone else. I find it is a mark of semi-rudeness and shows a lack of brain power and chavness.

I'm sure not many see it in the same way as I do, but I really do not believe having people say "mate" in every other sentence is appropriate, polite or respectful.

I dont think y'all should be complaining about the British English. The British are the ones who invented the language after all.
As already discussed above, I was astounded that none of my American friends knew the word "queue". I had to send them a picture of a "Taxi queue" street sign from London to prove the word exists. Furthermore, I had plenty of laughs on my side using the word "trousers". I though 'wtf'? I learned that at school!
For me as a non-native English speaker there is nothing easier to understand than a British who speaks perfect Oxford English. Great pronounciation, doesnt sound like the one speaking has a hot potatoe in his/her mouth like many Americans do.
What I dont like is that many words are spelled differently in American English. Well, its not only that its written differently, but that some Americans are not aware that it can be written in a different way. For example, I would write "neighbourhood" or "behaviour" instead of "neighborhood" or "behavior". The English do it, so this is how it should be done, right?  Wink

In defence of our American friends I have to say that I like their national soccer team much better than the English one.  duck
