    I remember a good one. The evening meal.

    "Tea" was what I grew up with. (Many people don't understand because they think of a hot drink.)
    "Supper" was the next I encountered (but I always thought that was something like milk and a biscuit before bed - or for older people perhaps a cup of tea and slice of cake before bed).
    "Dinner" seemed to be the most accepted, but many people seem to use that to refer to the midday meal also or instead, or any meal.

    Then I remember the following phrase, "If you don't eat your tea, then the dog can have it for dinner." So I guess in my house - tea was the evening meal for people, and dinner was the evening meal for the dog.

    underpants - knickers, jocks etc - gets shortened to pants (unisex) or panties (girls only).
    long pants - trousers, slacks, shorts, etc - basically daywear that covers your bottom and has separate holes for each leg - also shortened to pants.

    I see "trousers" as a particular type "long pants".

    My grandparents say dinner for lunch, tea for dinner and they call a sweater/jumper a guernsey! (sp)

    Life was very confusing.
