Don't worry Danny, in "real English - ie as spoken in England!
- there is no distinction.

There are {curly brackets}, (round brackets) and [square brackets].
You also get <angle brackets> and <<chevrons>>

But braces are things to hold your trousers (or is that pants?) up...
A parenthesis is any kind of grammatical pause, including commas, dashes

sufficient reason for the publisher to pull the book! :-)
