Hi Ken. Re the previous comments about British terminology ( Char, Khaki etc) lots of words still in use today originated in the days of the great British Empire of the 19th early 20th centuries, particularly from "The Jewel in the Crown"...ie India. Many British people lived or served in India and when they returned to "Blighty" (as they affectionately called Britain) they brought with them indigenous words which subsequently became integrated into the English language. "Shampoo" and "bungalow" are two others still widely used today. That aspect of lexicography is fascinating!
