    Noooo napkin is much better than serviette!

    Serviette is the 'lower class' version of the two, historically

    Re forehead, I've always pronounced it as it's written. My understanding was that 'forid' was a regional /dialect variance on the traditional pronunciation.

    I thought it was written "forehead" but pronounced "forrid", though I find that I have pronounced it "for-hed" since discovering the meaning of the prefix "fore-". I just thought I was saying it wrong.

    We call the Prima's Fruit Box
    The bottle a Pop Top.

    I noticed when I lived in S.A for a year A souvalaki is a yiros.

    My DH comes from Scotland, Glasgow. Some of his words drive me bonkers lol.
    Like a packet of chips are crisps.
    Sauce is Ketchup.
    Coke a Cola or Iron Bru is juice.
    Poo is Jobee which I get a laugh at.
    'Think that's funny ya wee Jobee?'
