I know it's slightly inaccurate, but could "Star Wars" be accepted for the Imperial March question?

I love this. I also love that this question was included. Every time a quiz is about football on this site, the British folks on here all comment "oh...THAT kind of football," and other stupid stuff about how their football is better than our football, and why do we call it soccer when the rest of the world calls it football. As it so happens, the term soccer was coined by the British themselves, and only started using football when the term soccer caught on in the United States. So see there...we TRIED to call it what you call it.

Yes! Exactly this, and I explain this regularly as an American immigrant to NZ. Here the term soccer has also traditionally been used but in the last 10 years they have tried to change it to football specifically because the term soccer is seen as being American and there's a strong current of anti-Americanism. The same is true in Australia despite their team being called the Socceroos.

The term "soccer" was created by the British, yes, but it was only ever used by upper class public schoolboy types who also called "rugby" "rugger". By the time "soccer" caught on among the working classes, they called it "football". There's a pretty big class divide in the UK even today, and that divide was even bigger in the past. It's understandable why nobody here wants to call it "soccer" nowadays, even if the original reasons have been forgotten.

Dude there might be a slight recoil from the pervasion of American culture but not much. In Australia, we tend to just eat a lot of American junk up. But we like to remain refined and British of occasion. Incidentally, we still definitely call soccer soccer, coz football is distinctly something else. Don't go drawing us in with your mob mr kiwiland; whole country of enigmas across the tasman. Hehe I like to (affectionately) accuse kiwis of being spies and that there sneaking in unawares and taking over. There are a lot of them here. We think Australia and new Zealand will merge...nah - the kiwis are gonna rule the Australasian Empire, god help us!

There is nothing at all "refined" about Britishness, or unrefined about Americanness.

You'd know who he is if you follow recent news (though his death isn't recent) or have seen memes including him.

I watch the news every day but I still had to google it. I remember the event in the news but didn't have any idea what the gorilla's name was, nor did I know what the term meme meant until I looked it up. And to answer Algernon's question, Harambe was the gorilla who was killed while dragging a three-year-old boy who climbed into his pit at the Cincinnati zoo. Honestly, people, if someone asks a question why not just answer it if you know the answer? Yes, we could look it up as I did, but it stands to reason that others don't know the answer, either, so if you are taking the time to reply why not just simply answer the question instead of making assumptions?

How exactly is soccer an abbreviation of "association football"? An abbreviation is "a shortened form of a word or phrase". I see the "soc" in "asSOCiation football", but where's the "er"? Is there another word somewhere that also got shortened? Maybe it's short for "asSOCiation football is bettER (than American football)"?

"Soccer" was created to similar to "Rugger" which was shortened from "rugby football" and somebody decided to twist "association football" into a similar form.

If properly shortened, Americans would now be playing Assoer - or maybe they wouldn't!

Sorry but that soccer question is ridiculous and completely incorrect. An abbreviation is a shortened form of a word. Soccer is not short for anything and certainly not short for association football.
