I was just listening to the news this morning and there was some story about American which referred to a settlement with a population of 3000 people as a small town. In Britain, we'd probably call that a village. But I've noticed before that places that would be described as villages in the UK are small towns in the US.
Is any settlement small enough to count as a village in the US, or is it not used at all? What connotations does "village" have in US English? What about Canada?
