Seriously though, what’s the deal with the distinct differences and rivalry between British English and American English? Why not just have everyone STICK WITH TRUE BRITISH ENGLISH?
Nah. But I still find it odd though. It’s practically still the same language! Different pronunciation, different words for things, and with or without gratuitous amounts of U’s.
I myself, when it comes to spelling, prefer to stick with British English. It’s classy, and God damn it if I can’t be bothered to add a few U’s here and there. Classy as fuck, I tell you.
But then again where British people would use “cycling” I would say “biking”. Actually no, cross that, I use both. My English is a bit of a slurry of British and American English combined, with classy highlights. (Thank British English for that.)
What kind of English do you speak? I that influenced by where you lived, how you were brought up or what people you came across on the internet?
