Q: What is the difference between ill and sick ?
A:
In America, 'ill' and 'sick' are used in the same way. 'Sick' is only a noun in the UK, not in the US.

If I'm in the US and I say "I feel really sick", I would be shown to the bedroom to lie down and rest. The understanding would be that I feel really unwell.
If I'm in the UK and I say "I feel really sick", I'd be shown to the bathroom or handed a bucket, as the understanding would be that I'm about to throw up!
If I wanted to describe the UK version in the US, I would say 'I feel sick to my stomach'.

There are many set phrases used in both languages, such as 'worried sick', 'it makes me sick'.... but the UK version has a tone of nausea that doesn't seem to be present in the US version.

Also, in the US, 'sick' is also slang for really cool. It's also being used here in the UK now, but it started in the US.
