Definition: a large vehicle, generally comprised of a cab and a good storage area.  Generally used for delivery or transport of goods.  In America these have up to 18 wheels.  In England, not more than 12.*
Used in a sentence:  It doesn't make me nearly as nervous to drive next to a lorrytruck in England as it does in America because they're smaller, which makes them seem friendly.

*The number 12 was based on a deeply researched and highly scientific google image search.  In other words, it was mostly made up, but it sounds right...

  1. I don't know about them being smaller... they sure look big on those narrow English country roads. I have to close my eyes when they approach.
