Also I am getting used to the more-British-than-American "different TO" where murricans say Different FROM.
I am *not* getting used to "on accident" instead of By accident, however.
Also some regions of the States equate the terms Anymore and Nowadays, while I use them differently:
I (verb noun) nowadays. Means I usen't* to but I do now.
I don't (verb noun) anymore. Means I used to but now no longer do.
I (verb noun) anymore just clashes.
*See, I remembered!
