Re: jailed vs imprisoned
In Britain the places in which criminals are locked away are prisons, run by Her Majesty's Prison Service - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. However, we frequently use the word 'jail' ( sometimes spelt 'gaol').
In normal conversation, the verb 'jail' is probably more commonly used than 'imprison'.
'Imprison' and 'prison' can also be used for non-criminal and metaphorical states:
The miners were imprisoned by the falling rocks.
His phobias made his house a prison for him; he was unable to leave for ten years.
