So you are really two countries separated by a common language... How do Canadians, New Zealanders and other natives manage in between? I think that for us non-natives, "fourth" is logically easier than "crochet", though crochet and quaver sound nice. Like the French "soupir" for a rest.

It gets worse :-) What the Americans call a full note, the English call a semi-breve (literally, a "half-note") :-)

So an American quarter-note is actually an eighth-note.  :-)
