I know the feeling! In my spanish class we were discussing local devon words with my cornish teacher and she said she'd never heard the word mitching until moving to out town (mitching meaning bunking off school, skiving playing hookey- call it was you may) and a boy who ahd just moved here from the isle of wight piped up asking what the hell mitching was. apparently it's called wagging in cornwall o.0

spelt correctly, covalent bond - the sharing of electrons ( immature boys titter) ionic bonding - the gving of elctrons (louder titter). it doesn't help the my cheemistry teacher understands stands this and considering there are 4 girls in the group this can't turn out well, he demostrates using language that will amke them laugh...epeverse in toehr words, but hey they remmeber it xD

As I recall, adolescent boys will laugh at anything :roll: It often lingers into the twenties... if it's still there in the thirties, kick him out!

In french we laughed at the French word for Bank (Le Bonk!)
In German we laughed at the German words for father and Exit .... (Vater and Ausfarht!)
Same the world over and I should imagine the same from centuries - if there was ever innocent words that may have another meaning adolescents (particulalrly boys!) will laugh.

Language is more particular to region that country, especially between the UK and the US.
Not so much a matter of accents as it is words in ordinary usage peculiar to a region.
