I have started to read the 'Encyclopedia of English' as a bedside book at
night. I have found many instances of not only two countries, but a whole
world, separated by a 'common' language!
I can't wait to go to "Laddie and Dukes", an ersatz Scots pub here in my
town ( in North Carolina, USA)  and order a "Stowp of ale for a guide-willie
waught"! I am sure the wee lass will cringe to see me again!
