Words With Two Meanings

United States
Boot (footwear)
Bonnet (headwear)


England
Boot (the trunk of a car)
Bonnet (the hood of a car)



These were just a few of the items that our houseguest and I discussed after dinner last night.

We discussed accents too.
I was unaware that there are VERY many accents over in England depending on the region. So, just like we have different accents depending on where we live, the English too have the same thing.
