What are crab grass and sand dollar? Must be Americanisms, because I've never heard of them.
+1
level 76

"Crabgrass", "finger-grass", and "fonio"are common words used for "Digitaria sanguinalis" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digitaria). "Sand dollar" is a common word for "Mellita longifissa" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sand_dollar), but "sea cookie" and "snapper biscuit" are used in New Zealand, and "pansy shell" is used in South Africa. Wikipedia's article is titled "sand dollar".

I ve heard of sanddollar and am not from america, the uk , new zealand, australia or south america.

but dont ask me where i ve heard it haha. Like 90% of my english, i have no idea where i picked it up. It is a mix of british, american an very old and obscure english haha.

in this case david attenburough might be a good guess ;)
