6 Ways British and American Grammar is Very Different

There is a difference between "in prison" and "in the hospital". In my state of Indiana, every city or town of a reasonable size has a hospital nearby. So if I say, "the hospital", there is a pretty good chance that I am referring to the one down the street from me. However, the state prison and other major correctional facilities are a long way off and I don't even know for sure where they are. It is hard to be specific.
