Oi Henrique,
Vc chegou a ler a série de dicas “Como Falar Inglês”? Se não, fale comigo.. Acho q vc iria gostar.

hi Jeroni, it’s true, lots of different words and meanings… I would focus on one variety at a time, and not worry so much about the differences.

jeroni 14/05/2010

There is so much dissimilarity between words proceeding from England that is different in United States. In brazil happen the same thing when we refer word coming from Portugal. Sometimes these words complicate more than help.

Ana Luiza 06/05/2010

Wikipedia is a helpful resource, but it is not always exhaustive.

Actually, the word assembler is very much in use as a position that involves assembling work. If you do a search for “assembler jobs” you’ll find plenty of examples from American companies, such as

As far as dressmaker, the Wikipedia page you linked to does not say they make dresses only. It’s more like women’s clothing, especially dresses (see the Answers.com definition here http://www.answers.com/topic/dressmaker )

And a bailiff can definitely be someone other than an officer who provides security in a court room. You can check the Answers.com or Wikipedia pages if you want:

If you check, a dressmaker specifically deals with dresses. The example in the quiz spoke generally of clothing.

An assembler, in most modern usages of the word, is a computer program or a machine. Which country or region supposedly calls assembly line workers “assemblers”? It’s totally possible that it’s the case in Britain or New Zealand, but I just can’t find any evidence of it.

    So, yo39&u#;re going to clutter up the video box with ads? If so, at least include a way to not show them because I don't watch videos to see ads and other items cluttering up and covering what I'm watching.

Ana Luiza 05/05/2010

Jacob… give me a break. You’re kidding, right?

*Of course* there are differences among American English and other varieties.

Words from “American English” sometimes have different meanings or uses depending on which US state you’re in, for pete’s sake.

Before leaving such comments again, please consider the possibility that the English being used is not the English you are most familiar with, and there’s a chance that, unbeknownst to you, it actually is correct language.

Jacob 05/05/2010

This quiz is terrible. I’m a native English speaker, and many of the terms here are NOT accurate or are used in such an odd way to leave no correct answer.

We call them tailors or clothiers, not “dressmakers”.

Someone who works on an assembly line is not an “assembler” but an assembly line worker.

The term “bailiff” as it’s used makes no sense to me, but perhaps this is a difference between American English and another variety. In the USA a bailiff is a police officer who provides security in a court room.

Osvaldo da Conceição Luis Laurindo 03/05/2010

good…keep sending more
