comment “Heard of anything” or “heard anything”
Did you hear John's new movie isn't necessarily incorrect. You could be asking if they heard the movie (i.e.heard the sounds the movie produced). It'd be a weird question, but not incorrect.

@MarkBeadles yes, I see that. I wasn't saying that it was an issue, just stating the reason for the downvote.

comment “Make something out of” or “Make something with”?
@FumbleFingers ohh I see your point. I think that is a regional thing. "Make into" is definitely acceptable from my understanding of English (American).

@FumbleFingers haha, you're just like the teacher who graded this quiz.

@BillFranke I absolutely abhor when that happens. Especially at times like this, when the alternate answer is perfectly valid. Tests should assess your knowledge of English, not your knowledge of what was covered in lecture last week. Sounds like a really lousy quiz.

@Mitch culture clash seems close, but according to this wiki answers page, culture clash just means the misunderstandings and disagreements caused by the need to learn a new culture's behaviors.

@AffableGeek Not really. It's more like when two people try to mutually bridge the culture gap, and in the end both just keep ending up on opposite ends of the gap. It's more of a deadlock caused by bridging the gap. See coleopterist's answer,he has the right idea.

And likewise, my first instinct is to do as the "Romans" do, since I'm in "Rome". So what I'm really looking for is a name for this kind of communication breakdown/deadlock.

I use this idiom all the time when I'm with fellow tourists complaining about not being able to walk while eating lol. That isn't what I'm looking for though, because I'm "in Rome", but the "Romans" are doing as I do.
