An ad on TV showed the newest car.
“You know who makes them do you?”
“Jaguar is originally a posh car made in the UK.”
“It’s not JagUar, it’s JagWar.”
“No, it’s pronounced JagUar, not JagWar. Jagwar is the American way of pronouncing it.”
“No, no, no, it’s JagWar.”
So, we Googled it.
My-soon-to-be-16 teen once asked me what a Bar rock was… I had to ask a few times what she was saying so that it was clear. Yep it was a Bar rock. I had no idea what she was asking me. It was a word I’d never heard before. So, I asked her to tell me what context it was used in.
“It’s was what soldiers live in”
“Ohhhhh.. you mean a Barrack!”…
We do have some giggles over our different accents and what are ‘new’ words to her.
