Some new words on the Helen DeGeneres show, UK vs USA accents.  Guess the meanings.  Note the difficulty of the UK person with "ch", mispronouncing it twice as "sh".  No clue why.

Also Helen pronounces "shawty" as SHAW-dee  ~shaudee.  Classic "t" for "d" swap.

Helen says for "fossing" ~flauseeng   The Brit repeats ~fluseeng.
