Correct - but real British chips are chunkier than skinny little french fries!
sglodion is also used in the sense of chips of wood, etc.
Yes, this is why we have determiners when it comes to "fries". Steak fries, home fries, curly fries, waffle fries. french fries. In any case learning sglodion this early in the course makes me very happy.
sglodion = 'chips'. Not [determiner] fries! Chips "that look as though they were once a potato" - http://www.bbcamerica.com/anglophenia/2015/07/what-is-the-difference-between-french-fries-and-british-chips/
So more like what I grew up calling "steak fries" (thicker slices of fried potatoes) or more like "potato wedges" (small wedges of fried potato)?
