Gullet

Posted by James Briggs on January 28, 2005

I was speaking to a friend in California a couple of days ago and describing a problem that I'd recently had with my gullet - I deliberately avoided the correct anatomical term, oesophagus, because many people in the UK don't know that word. However, my friend didn't recognise 'gullet', a bit of a surprise for me. Was this just her, or is 'gullet'uncommon/unknown in the US?
