It’s funny that they say in that CNN article that “Sometimes, corn is named maize in Europe”. I think that arises because there is a confusion about what Amercuns would understand by the word corn.

In British English corn just refers to any cereal grain before or after harvesting

Maize in contrast is what British English understand Amercuns to be referring to when discussing what we call “corn on the cob” or sweetcorn.

Similarly, we don’t have English muffins in England, at least we didn’t until they were imported from Amurca. Now, don’t get me started on suspenders, diapers, nappies, braces, hickies, lovebites and bangs.
