Is it your pants or trousers?

by Liisa

Although you might think that English is quite the same in most English speaking countries like Canada, US, and UK, there are some words that have different meanings. For example, in UK the word "trousers" refers to the long clothing item.

And when you use the word "pants" there, it actually is a shortening of the historic term "pantaloons," so you may end up in embarrassing situations where you think that you're talking about trousers, but others think that it’s the underwear that you`re talking about.
