For example - I now use "pub", "cheers", and a few others...

How did you live without these words...? And what did you call the pub before you knew it was called a pub??

If it's anything like here, we call pubs "bars". In fact, if I say "pub" in Quebec it actually means advertising.

Short for "publicity". Yeah, it's odd, I know.

Why dont you say 'Cheers' then?

I pretty much use that work for 'thanks' or for 'yay we are drinkin lets all tap glasses for no particular reason!'

We say "cheers" if we're clinking glasses, but that's about it. "Cheers" is a very British term. My b/f, who's from Belfast, says "cheers" as in thank you all the time over here and confuses people no end. We just say, well, "thanks".

As Tway said, we call them bars. But, we also call them taverns and my all-time favorite - BEER JOINTS!!!!!
