No, in Scotland it's "When do you want your deep fat fried caramel crumb choclate chip Mars bar?" Because this is a Daft area thread and we are allowed to pretend to be prejudice.


Nice recovery...

And there is a big differece between path and pavement. A pavement is next to a road. A path is something that runs through the countryside of forest or other stuff like that.


Not where I live/have lived. Path and pavement are interchangeable.

I'm not sure if "nice recovery" is an insult, but what the hey.

And you must live in the country if path and pavement are interchangable. Where exactly in the countryside do you live, Devon or Cornwall?

Hmm... not quite.

I don't mean that the notion of a country lane is equal to a concrete path/pavement beside a road. I mean that the words are interchangeable. In that, I've used path and/or pavement for a... uh.. "sidewalk" all my life, and so have many other people where I've lived.

Hmmm... I think path is sometimes used for pavement, but more often it's used for a walkway outside that does not follow the road. (e.g. countryside, but also a shortcut)
