Gaelic in origins.

Is the origin of the word 'ass', after the language was grunt-futtocked by dissident colonists (Americans).

Arse used in UK, Australia and New Zealand. Means 'the backside'.

"Arse" n. 1. Arse is usually a derogatory term used to label one's posterior or backside or bum or what have you and 2. Arse can be used with the same derogatory inference to describe a person.

In Australian variation English, depending on the context, "arse" might connote something with a more neutral inference adding humour to the flavour of a discussion.

In American variation English, "arse" is usually written and pronounced "ass". In Standard English, "ass" connotes mules or donkeys.

As English has become the 'international language' and many countries have adopted English as their national language as a consequence of British imperialism, particularly in the 18th and 19th centuries, over time the language has been adapted to the local landscape and been shaped by various influences. Examples like the 'arse/ass' dichotomy abound.

In Australia, no one gets upset if they are asked if they are "crook". Americans rebound in insulted horror at the use of the word "crook" to describe their well-being.
ex 1. My arse hurts.

ex 2. He's a silly arse.

ex 3. She's good looking, got a great personality, and she's got a nice arse, too.

ex 4. "There are no horses, so you will have to ride on the back of that ass", Joseph said to Mary.

ex 5. David was crook. He raced off into the bush. Later, I gave him some tablets to ease his stomach. But, he told me, he had a bug in his arse.

British/UK/Australian way of saying bottom.

Unfortunately, the Americans stole it and (as seems to be tradition) americanised it into 'ass'.

There must be a lot of confusion in America with their getting rid of British words and using an existing word instead.

Arse is an Israeli slang word for someone, usually male, who listens to loud, shitty trance and arabic music, wears too-tight jeans, Pumas, and track jackets (usually all in bright colors), and is generally a dick. Arseim (the plural version) can be found at shopping malls, wandering around and generally pissing everyone off with their monumental lameness.

Somewhat goofy name for your butt. It is how many people in many countries refer to their ass. Only cool when said outside of the U.S., when used by an American it sounds stupid because they think saying arse makes them seem cute or intelligent. I can't imagine why.
Arse, Americans shouldn't say it.
