Muriel Crothers, I think you'll find that kerb is British when it refers to the edge of ba pavement but curb when it refers to curbing behaviour, for instance. Organise is British but is seen as optional.

Claire McMillan, Your examples quoted - Scotland and Ireland, viz., "loch", etc., are out of context, since they are Gaelic terms, a language in its own right, not a dialect of English.
