Was he slashed or stabbed?

I've never heard this word before. Perhaps I am dense...but i found out it means 'ski mask'

I wonder what caused this attack? Was he a mean boss?

"balaclava" is a perfectly normal British English word.

If you want to say "ski mask", fine. But be aware you're being American.

No problem with that, by the way.

Yes. I blame that on my great-great-great (great?) grandparents.
