Thanks for that. In spite of actually having been an English teacher for most of my working life, I actually hate commenting on people's use (and usage) of English (at least to their face). Maybe just 'road' or 'hard road surface' should be clear enough. Hopefully this doesn't generate another linguistic rabbit hole for us all to disappear down. Or maybe, why not?Ah, the intricacies of language. I had not known this and will try to remember in the future. I guess I should not be surprised, though, because I remember when I first read on the forum about people walking on tarmac, I wondered — how do they get out on the runways? Don’t the airport authorities stop them?
So, if I can’t say tarmac, because Americans will immediately think of airports, and I can’t say pavement, because Brits et al. will think of sidewalks, can I say asphalt? Road walking is another option.
Thanks for pointing this out, @dick bird! I do like to be precise with language and avoid misunderstandings.
