It's not just every culture- every factory has its own words. I'll give a guy a list of parts and he'll ask me what one was- then we get to play Rosetta stone:
"What's A?"
"That's what we call it. I think Chevy calls it a B."
"Really? Kind of like what VW calls a C? We call it a D."

My favorite part name is probably the Detector, Natural Vacuum Leak Detection. It detects leaks, although by description you'd think it was for detecting the detection of leaks.
