my father (southern US) used to say that I was always "a day late and a dollar short", and I regret to say my punctuality and financial solvency have not greatly improved. ellen

Hello. I am a student of English and American
literature, but I am interested in English linguistics
I was wondering if the expression "late in the day"
is more prevalent in British English than American
English, and whether you can think of another similar
expression (with the adjective "late" in it).
