I think that skipping rope is probably the same thing as a jump rope.
That boy has too many skipping ropes
In BE we use skipping rope. I haven't heard jump rope before.
Another one for the catalog of AE/BE differences, I guess.
You guys are quick. I'm still stuck on why it is that the "boy" has skipping ropes in the first place and moreover why it is that he's so many of themOriginally Posted by tdol
Speaking of all things being equal check out how a mathematician defines jump rope:
We say runners in Canada; Yanks say keds? Ya gotta be kedding. :D
We say billy boots in Easten Canada; Western Canadians say rain boots?
Where did billy of billy boot come from?
I take it that wasn't written for those of us who don't have physics degrees.Originally Posted by Casiopea
