What is the difference between american english and local english?
the pronounciation of english between local english and american english?
I will attempt to tell you the differences that I have noticed.....this is based on my own observations.
There are differences in spelling, eg, English - sulphur.......American - sulfur
Grammar in terms of word usage, I can't think of an example right now but to prove this, write a normal sentence in Original English and select your computer language settings to US English and you will get a lot of errors.
English the official language of India sounds like a different language to American ears becuase you all talk Waaaaaaaay too damn fast! Slow down your speech please when talking to an American.
Same difference between Spanish from Puerto Rico and Mexican ( but not the border mexican - that's a little faster than the rest of Mexico)
I used to think that British English wasn't nearly as slangy and diverse as American English. In American English, there are so many variations that hardly anyone can understand each other. In England it is the exact same! There are just as many variations! British English is just as slangy and different in various parts of the country as American English. What you hear in London will not be what you hear 20 miles outside of London. The more North you go in England, the more harder it is to understand at all! Someone in Hastings would have immense trouble understanding someone in Liverpool! And even in a short 30 minute drive from Liverpool to Wrexham the accent will change substantially! Both American English and British English are really not much different at all! One has a "proppuh cup a tea" (Depending on the location in England) and the other across the pond is "Fixin' to get somethin' done!" (Depending on the location in America)
