Hi! What is the Am. expression for "give me a buzz" (phone)?
Thanks a lot!
¿A qué te refieres con Am?
Hello. Do you mean the American English for: call me = give me a call = give me a buzz = give me a shout = give me a ring (maybe there are more... wait for other suggestions)
Hi! thanks for your reply! My text book says taht "give me a buzz/ a bell" are more common in British English.
Besides, is "give me a shout" used by young people?
Yes, sometimes, and it doesn't necessarily mean by phone. If I'm going to another room, I might say, "If you need anything just give me a shout."
Give me a buzz is common in American English, too.
Give me a ring, is it used in the same way in British English than in American English?
give someone a jingle is also possible ... as in "You should give me a jingle next time you come to town"...
Separate names with a comma.
