Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind!

I could write a book on most of them, but today is the first time I've come across 'jumping rope".

Any NZ/SA differences?

 

One or two in SA, but that is understandable due to there having been two official languages for many years, and multiple official languages since the mid 90s.

 

In both NZ and Oz there is evidence of American influence on pronunciation of some words and also in the use of certain phrases, plus in NZ we also have two official language so in lots of cases Maori words appear in conjunction with English.
