I have a question.
Is the word arse a replacement for ass in the UK? I ask because the only time I've heard "arse" is from an Irish accent. I just wanted to know if it's actually spelt "arse" in the UK (since it's slang) or if it's just spelt this way to reflect an accent.
I have a strong English background, and this is why I ask. I read so much fic these days that I don't notice the usage of arse over ass anymore, but I find that "arse" seems to be overcompensating the Brit-pick-ish-ness.
Can anyone help?
