Interesting Fact: Americans have actually kept the original English "accent". The British, since the days of Red coats, have actually been the ones to deviate from the norm. Your history movies are alllllll wrong.

The British?...You're an idiot to say that there is a British accent. Britain is made up of 4 countries, one of which, Wales have their own language. Even accents in England vary massively between regions only a couple hundred miles apart.

1. That's just a theory made up by an American based on a few old poems.

2. It's irrelevant. The way that English people from England speak the English language is by default the "correct" way to speak English.

not a fact, a theory...

The thing is, you can't judge how people spoke by text as few people knew the correct spelling of words, and judging by poems is nearly impossible due to artistic liberties... either that or according to Shakespear, knees, grease, grass and grace pretty much all rhymed...

The girl who make these made a comic about why England was wearing the Union Jack ... When he wore his own flag everyone thought he was redcross guy.

Its funny because 'American' is closer to original English than European English. European English is spoken that way because after America became independent they wanted to separate themselves further, even at the language level.

That is the Union Jack. Not Great Britain's flag. Although they are almost the same. Besides, America is usually portrayed as ignorant of european culture in those comics.

The Red Cross is one of the most prominent charity organization, but I don't think they invented English.

Well England is part of the Island Britain, and the English language originated from England, so therefore logic dictates that English did in fact originate from Britain.

Actually it's the Union Flag. It is an easy mistake but not an acceptable one.
It is only referred to as the Union Jack when displayed upon a ship.

Union flag mate unless displayed on a ship mast. You can use the internet to see if I'm true, your choice.

Some people claim (wrongly) that the America ACCENT is closer to colonial (so called 'original') English, mainly because of the rhetoric accents Americans speak, but this is nonsense, because most accents in Britain still have rhetoric accents too, such as Irish, Cornish, Scottish, an many areas in East Anglia and the Midlands, and these all sound distinct and not all that similar. The person who came up with this theory obviously has the ignorant view that everyone in Britain speaks like the Queen or Hugh Grant. To say the American rhetoric accent is the "real" one is absurd and impossible to know.

Also, he isn't wearing the English flag.

And yet, because of the shared television shows and movies between us, our accents are slowly homogenizing...

now i do agree this **** it stupid. i could go on for hours about this language i call "da doo" language from my town (its ******* stupid. everyone looks back at it and laughs at themselves) but this is how different languages are formed. spanish, french portuguese and italian all formed from latin, but instead of them saying "hey lets create a new language" they just started speaking it. different slangs and dialects, of the same language and even a merge between other languages of the area soon branched off so far that they became what we now know as the romance languages. hell who knows maybe some day we'll have american, and mexico will have mexican?

English people speak nothing like the way they are depicted in American shows and movies. That's the problem here. Thinking everyone in England speaks like the Queen or Harry ******* Potter.
