RE: pants / trousers

Member since:

Also worth bearing in mind: 'pants' means 'underwear' to Commonwealth English speakers (but is still plural). We exclusively use the word 'trousers' for the visible full-leg article of clothing.

That is a distinction I wasn't aware. I have always used 'pants' when I have been talking about 'trousers'. So, thank you for the note, I shall try to remember it ;) (I am still trying to hone my english language skills. There are so many subtle little things everywhere to remember ;) But, care to explain what does 'fanny' mean? ;)
