none, just certain terms like rubish instead of garbage, lift instead of elevator, mate instead of friend etc.

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 :)

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.

2017-03-21 05:49:56

al-u-mini-um

only americans say it as a-loo because of their lazy tongues
2017-03-21 05:35:40
Well it's just like illuminati

nope, the double l changes the way you sound the vowel
2017-03-21 05:53:05

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.
