There are probably quite a few non-Americans who got it right. It is a popular item at football (soccer) games.

Even though we Americans don't watch soccer, we DO tend to watch World Cup soccer when the USA is in it. Most of the 80+ people in my office we well aware of the United States' standings in the S.A. world cup in '10 and a few of us left work early to see the game against Algeria. Now, I rarely yell and cheer when watching sports by myself in my home, but when Landon Donovan made that goal against Algeria to stay alive i jumped out of my seat and ran around the living room like a moron yelling at the top of my lungs HOLY S***...HOLY S***. But the thing that made that Cup the most memorable were those damn Vuvuzuelas. When I tried watching a Premier League match the following season it just felt like something was missing...and it was...the constant droning of the vuvuzuela wasn't there, and i actually missed them.

I think "tend to watch" is pretty strong language when you're talking about Americans watching soccer. Even world cup soccer.

I'm with Buck on this. I don't watch soccer except for the World Cup, but those damn vuvuzelas were all anyone talked about during the 2010 World Cup. They were ubiquitous and insufferable. I will never forget them.

I have heard of valedictorian as an American term, but it is never used here in New Zealand. The top scholar is Dux.

That's where the US term comes from. The class valedictorian traditionally gives the valedictory, or farewell speech at graduation. The salutatorian ranks second in class and gives the salutatory speech. I know because our daughter was her high school class valedictorian and had to write the speech.

A viola is not "like" a large violin, it IS a large violin, an alto violin to be precise. As a matter of fact, that's how we call it in French.
