      As for skirt, I think you can check any dictionary, even those in the UK. Basically it refers to a woman's garment that hangs from the waist and covers the legs. This is in contrast to a dress that covers the upper body as well. By extension, it also refers to any part of almost anything that covers the lower portions of that thing.

      And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
      You will find that it has discrete steps.

        Yup, except, a pencil skirt is not for pencils, and a fender skirt doesn't cover fenders.

          So, a kilt really is a skirt. I'm sure Al will be happy to hear that.

            Get yourself a copy of The Oxford English Dictionary, not some simplified spelling copy.

              "skirt" American slang for an individual wearing such a garment.

                Careful there, I suspect that there could be serious consequences if you called a kilt a skirt !

                          "Coupe" goes back to the horse-and-carriage days. In modern use, it's a two-door sedan (as opposed to four-door sedan, pickup truck. etc.)
