They have their own - a ‘pavement’ in Britain is a ‘sidewalk’ in North America a ‘footpath’ in Australia. In fact, one reason the richness of English is it borrows words from other languages and cultures that it has come into contact with. Have you ever wondered English often has more than one word to refer to the same thing? Well, it's because new words were to English as a result of contact with other cultures and languages. Many words we consider to be English originally came from other languages, for example, ‘passport’ from French, ‘mosquito' Spanish, and ‘sauna’ from Finnish. You think ‘hamburger’, ‘ketchup’, and ‘coffee' would come from American English, right? No, ‘hamburger’ is from German, ‘ketchup’ is Malay, and 'coffee' is Turkish, believe it or not. Some words you knew the origin of - 'karate' is a Japanese word, for example, ‘violin’ comes from Italian, and ‘tea’ originally comes from Chinese, but what about the word ‘cruise’? That actually comes from Dutch.
