Thanks to Adrian Hands who provided this information, and to Juan C. Agudelo, Ken Bensinger and Ricard Monrabà for additional help.

Please note that just as there are variants between British and U.S. English, there are also variants between European and American Spanish.

Even within the Americas, it is a looooong way from Mexico to Tierra del Fuego, so there will be many local variants of specific terms and usages.
