In England, traditionally we’d have the 1st/2nd/3rd… series of a programme.
I say season/series now though, and at first I felt like I’d succumbed to the might of US English. It’s like how Friends replaced “bloody hell” with “oh my God!”
I heard that some Americans now talk about going “on holiday”, so it works both ways.[/quote]
I’ve never heard any American say that. We still call it soccer. And when I mention football and the premiership I might as well not be speaking English.
Also, there’s no “e” in program ;)[/quote]
There are lots of others creeping in, ‘Awesome’ being the latest. And I get called dude a lot these days, I don’t like it. Im just waiting to hear someone say they’ve gotta take a rain check so I can slap the upside their head, I had to google that because I kept hearing it on tv.
And it will ALWAYS be football, don’t get me started! Do NFL players have exclusive use of their feet? Although as I type I’m thinking our most popular football tv show over here is Soccer AM… What’s that all about? GO FIGURE!
