although (conj.)

armchairs (noun, pl.)

bath (noun)

"Bath" is used in this chapter in the sense of "bathroom," not in the sense of "someone taking a bath." Public bathrooms may be called "washrooms," "restrooms," the "women's room" (which some women call the "powder room"), and the "men's room."

bathroom (noun)

bedrooms (noun, pl.)

car (noun)

Other words for "car" include "auto," "automobile," and "wheels" (slang). Many people drive small "pickup trucks" and "minivans" instead of traditional "sedans." Still others travel by "motorcycle."

carpeting (noun)

"Carpeting" generally refers to "wall-to-wall" carpeting and is quite common in apartment complexes in the U.S. Other floor surfaces include "tile," "vinyl flooring," and "wood flooring." Many people decorate with "throw rugs" and "area rugs" such as "Persian rugs" on wood floors.

connected (adj.)

contains, it (to contain)

dining room (noun)

New apartments and homes may have an "adjoining dining room," meaning that their "kitchen" and "dining room" are connected. More traditional homes have a separate dining area. Some older homes have a small room or corner in the kitchen with a small table known as a "breakfast nook" or "dinette."

dishwasher (noun)

down (adv.)

facing (pres. part.)

The expression "facing the pool" is a participial phrase. "Facing" is the present participle of the verb "to face." Another way to say this is "which faces the pool." "To face" something is to be directly across from it.

food (noun)

garbage disposal (noun)

go back (inf. to go back)

A synonym of "to go back" is "to return."

grocery (noun as adj.)

half (adj.)

In "half bath." A "half bath" is much smaller than a full bathroom. It has a "sink" and "commode" (or "toilet") but does not have a "shower stall" or "bath tub."

kitchen (noun)

A very small kitchen is known as a "kitchenette."

lease (noun)

A "lease" is a legal contract which you must sign when renting an apartment. A lease must clearly list the period of time the apartment is to be rented, the price (usually "per month") and other terms (such as "parking," "pet allowance," "deposits," etc.).

living room (noun)

A "living room" is sometimes referred to as the "family room" or "den." In some regions of the U.S., people still speak of their "parlors" or "sitting rooms" (meaning "living room"), even though the word "parlor" is considered "old-fashioned."

nearby (adv.)

north (adv.)

off (adv.)

premises (noun, pl.)

refrigerator (noun)

Some people refer to their "refrigerator" as the "fridge" or "Frigidaire." "Ice box" is sometimes heard, but is an anachronism ("out of date"). A house may contain a refrigerator with a smaller "freezer," or a large chest (also known as a "freezer") whose purpose is to keep food frozen.

side (noun)

sink (noun)

sofa (noun)

There are many types of "sofas" from which to choose in the U.S. One may buy a traditional sofa (also known as "couch" or "davenport"), the smaller, two-person "love seat," or the amazing "sleeper sofa," which is a sofa by day and a "bed" by night. Still others prefer to buy a "futon-style sofa" which can also serve as a bed.

storage (noun)

store (noun)

stove (noun)

A "stove" is another word for "range" which allows you to cook either on the stove-top "burners" or in the "oven." Stoves and ranges are either "gas" or "electric." Some even have "built-in microwave ovens."

street (noun)

A common abbreviation for "Street" is "ST" (or "St."). Similar abbreviations include "AV" (or "Ave.") for "Avenue," "BLVD" (or "Blvd.") for "Boulevard," "LN" (or "Ln.") for "Lane," "RD" (or "Rd.") for "Road."

study (noun)

A "study" is a kind of office that can be found in a person's home.

supermarket (noun)

Some people use the terms "supermarket" and "grocery store" interchangeably. Supermarkets in many cities have almost anything you need under one roof, such as "banking services," "photograph processing," "clothing," "sporting goods," "appliances," and "groceries."

take a look (inf., to take a look)

takes, it (to take)

throughout (adv.)

tour (noun)

trash compactor (noun)

walk (noun)

wall-to-wall (adj.)
