Do you speak Indian English, Jamaican English, or... Malaysian English? There are so many "Englishes" in the world!

For example, I've heard that in Malaysian English, "bungalow" refers to a mansion or a luxuriously decorated house, whereas in US or UK, it refers to a small house or a cottage.

Another example... in Philippine English, a bathroom is refered to as "C.R. (Comfort Room)"... yeah, we can all understand why it is called this way Wink

Tell me if you know any other interesting vocabs in different Englishes!!
