… someone tells you it’s raining out and you reply, “I’d better get my brolly.” *
… someone is about to go outside in the rain and you say, “I’ve got my umbreller if you want.”
The English love to add ‘er’ to the end of words that normally end with an a. When Adrian was alerted to this fact he couldn’t understand it. He said he doesn’t say that, but he does. They all do. If you call attention to it they won’t say it, but just listen up and you’ll hear things like “pizzer” and “paster” all over the place!
*I had to edit this sentence because I accidentally made it sound American. I got too caught up with the word brolly and forgot the details of the other words!
