Jumper: In the UK this just refers to an garment you wear over your shirt for warmth. It doesn't have buttons, and it pulled over your head. In the US this has a completely different meaning. It is a type of girl's dress, a top, with attached shorts basically. It has a kind of "little girl" sense to it kind of like pinafore, however, for sure adult women wear them too.

Pullover: again is a garment you wear over your shirt, pulled over your head. The meaning is the same in the US and UK, but it is a pretty uncommon word in the US.Pullover is absolutely part of the wardrobe here! But it needn't be wooly — it can be made of fleece (synthetic) or a lightweight cotton-jersey knit type thing with long sleeves. Has to pull over the head versus zipping or buttoning up the front.

По-моему, это абсолютно одна и та же фигня, да простят меня шарящие в моде люди.

The words abandon and leave imply involuntary acts; the words forsake, relinquish and desert, those that are voluntary.

To abandon
, is more applicable to things; leave, to persons. To abandon something is to leave it behind, to cease caring for it. If something is abandoned people have stopped controlling it, keeping it. He was under a necessity of abandoning his possessions, and compelled to leave his friends.

To forsake, implies leaving in resent|ment or dislike; to relinquish, quitting. To forsake something is to reject it. It is not commonly used in normal speech. There is a description of something really bad as 'godforsaken' - ie even God has stopped caring for it - it is really an unloved, derelict or terrible place. Probably the most famous phrase is from Psalm 22 in the Bible - My God, why hast thou forsaken me? This use gives its meaning of 'abandoned, left behind'. But it is more about repudiating something, making a deliberate choice to stop doing something, you forsake the chance to go to university, and get a job instead.

To desert, leaving meanly or treacherously.

To quit, implies the breaking off from, and may be either voluntary or involuntary.
