Yes, and so does Northern "English" a Scottish accent on your "English" Cockney "English" and the Gaelic accent on "English" in that one country your government keeps trying to say is really just more England. And that's just on your island and the one right next to it. And yes, I asked you to stay on topic because you instigated a discussion, and now that your points are being countered and your fallacies pointed out, you are trying to get me to go of about how it's french fries and cookies, and frankly, I don't care.

Scotland is a separate country.
Gaelic is a separate language, spoken in Wales. It is again, a separate country. The Welsh speak English in an accent, yes.
But the majority of words, though pronounced in different ways, are pronounced the same (or atleast very similarly) phonetically.
It is a fact, still, irrefutably, that time and separation has led to different pronunciations, spellings and uses of words in the US. Why does this bother you so much?

I don't even know why I said Welsh, that was just plain silly.
Welsh is the Welsh language, it's Welsh.
And because blamie mentioned a Scottish accent, but the Scots pronounce the majority of words identically to England and certainly spell them all the same. They also have Gaelic, but nobody other than Edie McCredie and chums on Balamory use it.

Because you are acting as if it matters, and as if there is no variation in "English" pronunciations in England, and there is a difference between "English" and "American English" when there is so much variation from place to place, which is retarded in the major degree when the language varied from person to person. We are speaking the same words to each other, with the same grammar and syntax, the same spelling, and the same sentence structure, English is English. Also another point to make is that you are trying to make yourself feel superior to Americans by diluting yourself into thinking that we are speaking different languages.
#253 - gtaant (09/10/2013) [-]
Yes, that's exactly what I'm saying.
I've made my points, phonetically the majority of words spoken in Britain are said the same, but in different accents. There are examples of US words which are pronounced entirely differently, examples of which are posted above, such as left-ten-ant to loo-ten-ant.
There are also words which are the same but have different meanings on either side of the point, as I pointed out.
We also have varying spellings and grammar conventions, which you have denied. For example, in the US words are "ized" whereas in the UK they are "ised", and in the US "er" is more common than the "re" used in the UK (e.g. liter/litre).
Time and distance has lead to two languages, American and British English.
