first it didn't strike. then it hit me! :Dmost intelligent absurdity I've ever seen!
top of the list
please tell me how its an oxymoron
Two different nationalities;
Also, English isn’t American
Ahhh… you must be American
Has anyone ever heard of the word “dialect”?
2 different nationalities? Those are two different things, but not opposite. I’m not an expert on this, but this is not an oxymoron is it?
People from Germany speak German; If you’r from Spain your language is Spanish and of course if you’re from England your language is English. Other nationalities uses these languages for different reasons, the main one being a former colony of the origin of the country. Americans want their own language, sadly there is no language called “Americanish” and ‘American English” is an oxymoron . . .
American English spells and pronounces things differently
it’s the same when u say english american
I don’t understand this being an oxymoron. The three types of English I know most are American, Australian, and British English. There are different spellings, pronunciations, and words in these English varieties.
I don’t understand this being an oxymoron. The three types of English I know most are American, Australian, and English (from England). There are different spellings, pronunciations, and words in these English varieties.
Yea, English and American aren’t opposites. Its probably a British example making fun of America.
English comes from England, and American is from America. They’re “too different places”. Even though English is actually just a language….
There is no “Australian” English. We speak English mongo.
