    Has anyone ever heard of the word “dialect”?

  • Mr. De k.

    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 . . .

    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.

  • RomanGodfrey

    English comes from England, and American is from America. They’re “too different places”. Even though English is actually just a language….

  • Farkov

    There is no “Australian” English. We speak English mongo.
