If you’re having a spot of trouble figuring out some of the words in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows—hint, trainers are tennis shoes—this site will help. The (very) Best of British : The American's guide to speaking British has over 1000 words and expressions that differ in usage between the USA and the UK, in seven categories: home, slang, people, motoring, clothing, around the house, food and drink, and “odds and sods.” There are lots of similar sites, but I like this one because it is enlightening and a lot of fun to read.
