Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Q&A about words The windmills of my mind
#39133 08/22/01 05:09 AM OP I happened to use the word rota the other day, only to find that my interlocutor (a USn) had only the vaguest idea of what I meant. I then tried it out on a group of assorted Canadians and Australians to find that although they understood it, it was not the word they would use.
Is its use confined to the UK?
