none, just certain terms like rubish instead of garbage, lift instead of elevator, mate instead of friend etc.
muricans pronounce R
color / colour
favorite / favourite
defense / defence
offense / offence
small differences in terminology, spelling, phrases, and pronunciation
for example in usa it's color, uk it's colour. that applies to a lot of words with the O sound like that
in usa it's aluminum and pronounced a-loo-min-um
in uk it's alimunium and pronounced a-loo-mini-um
uk ppl use random weird words like crikey and mate and bullshit like that
canadian english funny enough is a weird mix, i think they use uk spellings of like color and stuff but other us stuff
not sure about AUS or other english speaking countries but I think they tend to use uk english

Can confirm NZ and Australia is British spelling. British words aren't bullshit, just not the same as yours :)
just jokes haha although i do refuse to accept that crikey isnt weird af
we're all incredibly sorry for having larger vocabularies hah
Mate, bugger all I'm feeling knackered. Let's kerfuffle. Cheers. (Not sure what I just said) <3
kerfuffle is a noun you dunce, not a verb.
I just googled British slang xD
well whatever you found was written by an american
I didn't read any of the definitions I just used random words heh
only americans say it as a-loo because of their lazy tongues
Well it's just like illuminati
nope, the double l changes the way you sound the vowel
Also some of the words have different spellings. Eg colour in UK is color in US
UK sounds sexy USA sounds fast eating words af
The biggest thing I noticed is the accents, imo.
Might just be because I'm american but there's also Europeans who have the same struggle, I and they cannot understand UK accents well, hence the meme, "uwotm8?".
I love the way Midwest/West/East Americans talk. (Southern Americans has shit accents usually but still more clear than most UK).
That's my thing of the BIGGEST difference.
Small differences, written english, different words (color/colour), pronunciations of certain words.
