In all these pairs, the British English word is first and American English is second. Both words in each pair mean the same Jam and jelly (food made from fruit and sugar that you spread on bread) Chips and (French) fries (sliced, fried potatoes, served hot) Crisps and chips (thinly sliced fried potatoes sold in foil bags and eaten cold) Nappy and diaper (the thing a baby wears before they are toilet - trained) Pissed off and pissed (colloquial term for angry/annoyed) Drunk and pissed (intoxicated from drinking alcohol)
