Well, it is the U.S.'s national language, and the U.S. is situated in North America, so...yeah, actually.

American English, the English spoken in America. Exactly how long ago should we have conquered the place in order to be native? The "native americans" weren't there originally, either.

And the people who live in America now took the land centuries ago. My question stands: how long do the people need to be there before they get to be called "native."

they'd have to be the first ones to settle the area, so never.

History does not support that. That's white guilt talking. Nobody gets to just call dibs on a region forever. You wouldn't call a British person non-native just because his Anglo-Saxon, Roman, or Norman ancestors weren't "there first."

The Anglo-Saxons, Romans, and Normans didn't wipe out the Britons.

and also, north america was populated mostly by neanderthal, the homo erectus came along and slaughtered them, not to mention everything was once underwater, so technically shellfish were the original natives. Now, since whites control the grand majority of the land, and the natives have subjected themselves to us, we're the natives.

Native Americans were the first ones in the continent. many of their languages actually originated here

And it has different spellings, pronunciations, and colloquialisms in North America. Hence, American English.

but it is not an american language at all. It's English with some cultural influences.

congratulations similar languages have similar starting points. Isn't that good that you noticed, because if I remember correctly every western language came from LATIN so are you saying that all languages, regardless of changes (which by the way american english is by far more complex and larger than british a.k.a. proper english) are all Italian?
