Pardon my ignorance, but is a poseur the same as a poser?

Wendy – Your ignorance is duly pardoned, we can’t all be clever.
The English term poseur is a loanword from French, in which it is used with the same meaning as in English to refer to people who “affect an attitude or pose”. In other words, show off.

A note to my American friends: a “twat” is not the same as a “twit”

Thanks Sarah. I can’t imagine how the Americans interpret “twat”, but here in Britain it means a “silly or stupid person” with an IQ of approximately -2, and a “twit” is usually an upper-class chinless public-school type of person.
