    W.C. 是 Water closet 的縮寫

    W.C. 不是 "不文雅" 的叫法

    Water closet ~ (old-fashioned) toilet = 廁所, 舊的叫法

    Water closet 和 W.C. are used less and less these days.

    loo (British), john (US) ~ informal English

    khazi, kharzy, karzy (British) ~ old-fashioned, slang

    bog (British) - 【英俚】廁所 ~ 不文雅的叫法

    美國用 restroom, washroom, ladies' room, men's room (不是 man's room) 是 toilet in a public place

    英國用 the ladies, the gents, public convenience (formal)

    lavatory (formal) - a toilet in a public building/plane

    bathroom - a room with a toilet in it, in someone's house 【美】衞生間﹐廁所

    latrine - 戶外廁所 (營地或軍營)

    To Wong Choi Yan:

    Taste is too individual to be standardized.

    The choice of word normally depends on what is judged to be socialogical level, age, etc. of the person adressed

    各人喜好不同

    Water closet 現時很少人講, WC 還有

    謝謝評價與分享

    外國人不說WC

    說WC 似乎只在華人社會

    文雅的說法是"Ladies' room" or "Man's room"

    普遍的說法是"Rest room"

    家裡的廁所是"Bathroom"

    古代中文的說法 "觀瀑亭"或"聽雨軒"

    民間說法是"茅房"

    現代人都說"洗手間"或"化妝室"

    一般說法是"廁所"

    係.....其實英文表達廁所的方法各有不同

    你可以用一些文雅少少的字會較好,

    e.g.bathroom
