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?
In the UK at least it's slang for vagina I believe.
In the US, the word 'fanny' refers to the 'rear end'.
Oh, and I've always figured that pants was considered plural because it ends in 's'. I know that's not a very good rule, though, because there are plenty of exceptions (There's a good English rule!). I just haven't been able to think of a better reason! Edited 2008-05-08 15:44 UTC
Not only does "fanny" mean "rear end" in the US, but it's considered a very innocuous, and even childish word. It's also antiquated, and not in wide use anymore, which should come as a relief to horrified Brits.
