My horses are being fed corn though, I don't think we're meant to have corn in this part of the world yet, are we?
Corn in the English language outside of the USA is any sort of cereal crop and comes from an Anglo Saxon word. Many times UK authors will get seized upon by American readers for talking about corn in a historical context when everyone knows that corn is a New World crop don't they? Only it ain't. I am surrounded by ripe cornfields at the moment where I live and they are all either wheat or barley. What the US calls corn, we call sweetcorn. Lindsey Davis had a rant about it once.
