English is the language of our country, yet many of us use different vocabulary and colloquial slang depending on where we are and what lives we lead. Etiquette expert, William Hanson, suggests that your vocabulary can reveal your social class — even though the way we speak is also shaped by our colleagues, friends and interests. For example, the word 'lounge' is a no-no for the upper classes, 'dinner' is the preferred term for the evening meal, and 'napkin' is better than 'serviette'. Hanson goes on to say that a reflection of upper class social status is in using English rather than Americanised words, such as 'hey' and 'movies'. The biggest no-no for the upper classes, however, is using the word 'toilet', which is taken from the s etiquette code.

He then suggested a couple of contactless greetings, admitting: 'It is awkward, I'm aware of that. We've spent years extending our hand or putting arms out to greet people.
