;-)And in case you're American and haven't heard of a lorry, it's a truck.;-)
The other day I pronounced tomato like an American. It sounded strange after 5 years of pronouncing it like a Brit. Today I asked my wife if the trash had been picked up instead of saying rubbish, or asking if the bin men had been by. I'm relapsing. :-d;-)
To my surprise, I learnt not long ago that lorry and truck were both once in use in Britain. There were some regional differences and slight differences in application, but the words were close to interchangeable.
Truck was more common in the West Country, but fell out of favour in the late 17th century. And what's in the West Country? Plymouth. And when did some people sail from Plymouth to the USA? The early 17th century.
So it looks as though the USA has preserved an English word that would otherwise have become entirely archaic.
