Something that was mentioned to me before but I never thought to check the truth of this statement, until now.
To those who speak British English: is it true that the idiom "to knock someone up" only means "to get somebody pregnant" when used in American English? In support of that, neither Merriam-Webster nor Oxford dictionary mention that meaning, at least not their online versions. The Oxford dictionary, in fact, mentions a completely different meaning, something to do with the sports. Can someone answer that? I was also kind of curious as to what other idioms exist in one but not the other.
