Americanisms are Creeping into my Language and I don’t Like It



They’re biscuits not cookies

Icing not frosting

They’re rolls, they’re not buns

It’s a boot not a trunk



We say finished not done

It’s a toilet not bathroom

They’re bush fires not wild fires

We spend dollars not bucks

Blame telly, movies. records……
