Bitch, we may have a lot from the French and we may be very proud of it, we have almost everything else down in Louisiana. As one who's from Metairie (between the Lake and NOLA), I am rather offended you've just over-simplified my people like that.

User avatar #54 - blamie ONLINE (04/24/2014) [-]
hate to say it but the point of the US was that its "culture" is the world culture, taking pieces from every culture in the world. Sadly in recent years its only drawing the ****** and stupid ones.

do people really believe that **** ?
User avatar #14 to #10 - metalmind (04/24/2014) [-]
That would still be the russians.
They defeated over 90% of German forces in WWII.
The USA only faced a small guard force of inexperienced "soldiers".
And they didn't even face it alone.
Not much pride to be taken in that.

Question: Are forgetting the entire Pacific theatre during WW2?
Answer: Yes
User avatar #174 to #81 - liftplus (04/25/2014) [-]
which the U.S started it cut off japan's oil they had no choice but to start a war and yes they warned the U.S several times
#177 to #174 - anon (04/25/2014) [-]
We cut off Japan's oil so they started a war which would require insane amounts of oil? Literally the worst option they could have picked.
User avatar #178 to #177 - liftplus (04/25/2014) [-]
they didn't have a choice really they hoped to end it quickly
#179 to #178 - anon (04/25/2014) [-]
They hoped to end it quickly? They literally said invading the US would be a death wish so a takeover or land military option wasn't even in question. Are you saying they thought they'd just bomb the US and the US would go OH **** THIS SMALL ISLAND ATTACKED US BETTER THROW OIL AT THEM
User avatar #180 to #179 - liftplus (04/25/2014) [-]
yeah pretty much they were not known for being the "smartest" especially around that time era I guessed they hoped for sanctions to be lifted when a stalemate was reach idk what was going through their heads... :/
#129 to #14 - durkadurka (04/25/2014) [-]
1. Japan,
2. Lend Lease,
3. Bombing campaigns
4. The Soviet Union had to send millions of their people through a ******* meat grinder to get anything done. Not much pride to be taken when your method of victory involves drowning your enemy in a sea of your soldier's corpses.

And yes, russia lost a lot of soldiers.
But only because the core force of the Wehrmacht was focused on them.
User avatar #33 to #30 - metalmind (04/24/2014) [-]
Still, over 90% of German forces were defeated by the Russians.
And it's not like the USA were the only ones fighting on more than 2 fronts.
User avatar #35 to #33 - spookyexplain (04/24/2014) [-]
Yes, but the US was fighting the most on two fronts

Ignoring everything else, the only ones who could really say they "won" anything from WWII would be USSR and US since they emerged as superpowers and pretty much ruled the world with their policies for a few years. So yes, the US was a champion of the war.

You do realize that Russia lost WW1 right? They not teach you that in Germany, or are you just to stupid to learn?
User avatar #147 to #14 - teoberry (04/25/2014) [-]
It's a stretch to say Russia participated in a "world" war. In ww1 they barely made it past Poland, and in WW2 they were mostly defending their own territory. Sure, they made it to Germany, but guess which country made that possible? The US & other allies cleared out most of Yurop, while Russia protected their turf, and even then, it shows nothing about their military skill, rather their numbers and lucky weather.

Japan can totally go commie, it's not a cultural matter, it's about a class wanting to take over among other stuff. Americans are descendants of different populations, which is where they got their culture from, that's what I meant.

For the curdled-milk-based, custardlike food with a tart flavor, yoghurt is the preferred spelling in the main varieties of English from outside North America. Yogurt is preferred in American and Canadian English.

Are you implying only amerifats are allowed to criticise amerifats?

Crappy joke though, the US not only developed it's own culture based on it's huge immigrant population Which europe and canada won't stop bitching about. , it went so far as to change the language after gaining independence so as not to sound too much like the insufferable limey bastards.

Literally every word there is an originally English word, without any americanised spellings. Minus the two wherein you ****** up the grammar.

Your accents are also strikingly similar to Irish, and variants thereof.

Keep on truckin'
User avatar #57 to #45 - kciwtsob (04/25/2014) [-]
Given that a **** load of english words are just taken from latin anyway its not that good of a point. American accents sound irish? I'm used to american accents so i guess im too biased to tell but is this something that lots of people think
#65 to #57 - broorb (04/25/2014) [-]
Well... yeah. That's how language works. The point being that very few English words are the same as Latin, whereas to call American English a "different language" is laughable at best
User avatar #91 to #65 - youngfearless (04/25/2014) [-]
except that almost no one claims it's a different language, it's a different dialect
#218 to #91 - broorb (04/25/2014) [-]
the lad above wrote "change the language". that's all to which I was referring, mate
User avatar #223 to #218 - danniegurl (04/25/2014) [-]
change the language, not create a new one. IE different spellings, meanings of some words, and slang.
User avatar #244 to #65 - languagexplain ONLINE (04/25/2014) [-]
Not really. Many languages are in this way 'essentially the same language', except for having undergone changes due to separation via political borders. 300 years ago, Dutch and german were still the same language to the point that both languages had the exact same name, and a similar thing happened between Swedish, Norwegian and Danish, languages which are still very much mutually comprehensible.

These processes also worked on British and American English, but because America was colonised so late it didn't have much of chance to radically change before globalisation became a thing and slowed the process down.

In the end it all comes down to whether authorities (political and academic) define a language as a language by itself or not. American English has a somewhat special status in that it is seen as a dialect of English, but with its own (valid) standard forms.
User avatar #92 to #45 - kilotech (04/25/2014) [-]
English whether "American" or "proper" is just a mash up of dozens of languages then simplified. the only reason it's standardized is because you ***** had a national pastime of enslaving natives and raping them. plus some Americanisms are good like red sauce/ketchup

TL; DR British are assholes who think they are always right
#219 to #92 - broorb (04/25/2014) [-]
Hahaha, slight ad hominem, mate.

English is its own language, regardless of whence it came. American English is not a "changed language" as the guy above claims.

Bringing up the slave trade is about as useful to your argument as bringing up WWII to a German. Chill.

A lot of American English words are NOT originally from England. Several words are borrowed from other cultures, such as native american, spanish, etc.
#246 to #242 - broorb (04/25/2014) [-]
A lot? Name ten
User avatar #247 to #246 - languagexplain ONLINE (04/25/2014) [-]
Anorak, bayou, squash, kayak, chipmunk, hickory

all of these derive from Native American languages.

words like vamoose and ranch are derived from Spanish.

Bagel, klutz, glitch, schmuck come from Yiddish.

And words like Bazooka, caboose, coleslaw, dollar, geek, and yes, even Santa Claus derive from Dutch.

Are you trying to out-language languagexplain?
#248 to #247 - broorb (04/25/2014) [-]
the Dutch and Yiddish words aren't specific to American English, though, are they?

(Dollar comes from German)
User avatar #249 to #248 - languagexplain ONLINE (04/25/2014) [-]
German and Dutch are historically the same language.

Aso these words generally see more use in American English and when they don't they are direct borrowings from American English into British English.

That's right. British English borrows from American English. Newsflash.

I've actually heard that American English sounds pretty much exactly like British English from back when the US was founded, so they didn't actually change the language, the British have over time. I'm not bitching, just knew a thing and thought other people should know the thing
User avatar #204 to #201 - reginleif (04/25/2014) [-]
Nah bro, yer bitching admit it.

You know I actually did hear the same thing, but they did kinda change the spelling of some words cause they didn't want to look up to England for their language.

Englishexplain, Limeyexplain, Americanexplain, explainexplain, languagexplain, is this true?

User avatar #228 to #204 - languagexplain ONLINE (04/25/2014) [-]
Both British English and American English developed changes after the split. Most notably, Americans had a spelling reform to strive towards a more intuitive spelling, one example of which is the dropping of the 'u' in words like colour and flavour.

There's a famous story among linguists about how it was only two weeks after the founding of Jamestown that letters were sent back to Britain containing notable changes in vocabulary and usage, enough to cause confusion back home.

I must ask if wiwaaaa is actually right on this one, for scientific purposes. Is American English a spin-off of British English or vice versa or is some older english a common ancestor of both?
User avatar #245 to #243 - languagexplain ONLINE (04/25/2014) [-]
When you get right down to it, it's infinitely more complex than either of those explanations.
Both developed from early modern English, at the time of the colonisation, and both went on to undergo different changes due to different influences.

American English came in contact with Native American languages, Spanish, French, etc. while Britain was off ruling the waves and generally being very imperialistic indeed. Not to forget that both countries of course maintained contact, and thus, influenced one another as well.

TL;DR It's one huge *********** .

Not really.

A bunch of foreign lifeforms come in, reproduce, and interact to form a mixture of cultures on the yogurt.

The yogurt is just a location with resources. It's the population that makes the culture.
