: : 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?

: Gullet is not unknown here, but is uncommon. I have used it many times but maybe that is because I am from Ireland and heard the word frequently while growing up. I have heard it used here but usually when referring to poultry.

Gullet is known in my part of the country -- West Virginia and Kentucky. Must be the chicken connection.
