You will also hear words and phrases which have fallen out of use, particularly from American English, due to reading writers such as London. Twain, Dickens and Christie.
Especially some of more descriptive adjectives in Conrad's novels. An average American graduate would need a dictionary on each page of any of his books and would like to replace those words that seem so weird with 'cool,wicked cool, *******', ******', and maybe three other ones. :)
