Although "English" English and "American" English are mutually intelligible, there are numerous differences between the two dialects, some of which can cause confusion. That's why I have begun to compile an English English / American English dictionary to assist European DDO members.

English English / American English

Bum...................A$$, Fanny
A$$....................Donkey
Tramp................Bum
Fanny.................Pvssy
Pvssy..................Kitty
Biscuit.................Cookie
Cracker................Biscuit
Faag....................Cigarette
Bender.................Faag
Faaggot...............Meatball

Can anyone add more?

Brit/American

Chav = Scene kid
Taking the p*ss = F*cking with you
Alright? = What's up?
Bloody/Bleeding = F*cking/Goddamn
R*ndy = Hot
@rse = @ss
Ace/Brilliant = Dope/Wicked
Snog = Making out/Second base
Full of beans = Cracked out
Wank = Jack/jerk off
Sloshed = Sh*tfaced.

That's al I can think of right now.

I've learned a good chunk of English vs. American English just by watching Harry Potter. They seem to use "snogging" and "bloody" a lot, though.

Harry Potter ain't the best source. Turn on BBC comedy and you'll learn a lot and quick.

My dad still uses British English every once in a while... just yesterday he said "Search me" and I wouldn't have known what he meant if it weren't for Harry Potter.

Also, you guys say "jam" instead of "jelly" and "jumper" instead of "sweater". Can't really think of any others. My favourite word is "wanker".

How do you do? / Hey! What's happenin' dude?

I say! That's a bit rum, old boy / Goddamsonofabitch, what are you nuts, you muthafuckin' a$$hole

She bounced off the bonnet, hit the windscreen, flew over the roof, rebounded off the boot and landed on the tarmac. Then she was run over by a dustbin lorry / The old lady stepped off the sidewalk without looking and was hit by a speeding taxi. She bounced off the hood, hit the windshield, flew over the roof, rebounded off the trunk and landed on the pavement. Then she was run over by a garbage truck.
