You may think that English is the common language of the British Isles, but many people speak dialects which contain words that confuse and confound. Just ask yourself what you call a cob..? Whilst you are scratching your head, let me translate. In Derbyshire we eat cobs, but they are also known as rolls, bread cakes, baps, bread buns, barmcakes and even a softy. You might question what point I’m trying to make here..? When you’re speaking with an audience, never assume they understand what you’re talking about.
