Actually, the American accent is much more accurate to the "original" English accent than that of the British. So technically Americans speak English - Brits speak English with a British dialect.

Actually, when America was colonized, they had their current accent. British changed sometime in the early 1800s.

That's actually correct. Words like "yonder" or "skillet" that southern Americans use are actually 17th century English words. So in all reality, the American southern accent is actually just the way British people talked in the 1600's. They just evolved their accent since then.

History FTW

Technically, American English has changed the least from the time of the American Revolution. English people began pronouncing the words so ******* weird because they wanted to sound more "proper."

I think that's called 'slang'.

It's just odd because Australian, New Zealand and American dialects are all closer to one another than any are to English dialects.

Also americans and english people have different accents within their own country.

Actually the american is the original english. British english became popular during the 17th and 18th century.
