Crochet Stitch Name Equivalents

I do not claim to be an expert on this . . . but my understanding is that the English call a stitch by the next larger name than do the Americans.  So if you're an English crocheter trying to decipher an American pattern, you'll need to think one full stitch up from what the pattern specifies.  And vice versa.  If you find any errors in this, *please* email me so I can correct it!
