A lot of the words used in American English that are not used in British English are actually old English words that went out of fashion here.

American English also adopted words from other langauges, for example 'Cookie' comes from the dutch word koekje. Thats why England says biscuit instead.

I'm studying six languages and I've realized most English words with more than two syllabes come from either French or Latin.
