Well, it is the U.S.'s national language, and the U.S. is situated in North America, so...yeah, actually.
User avatar #144 to #98 - rockamekishiko (05/23/2013) [-]
national language? it's not even the USA's official language
User avatar #254 to #144 - schneidend ONLINE (05/23/2013) [-]
De facto national language, as I said above.
User avatar #103 to #98 - thewhitenigger (05/22/2013) [-]
wow man, do you know why it is called English and not American
User avatar #109 to #103 - schneidend ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
American English. Different spellings, pronunciations, colloquialisms, etc.
User avatar #110 to #109 - thewhitenigger (05/22/2013) [-]

American English. Try again.
User avatar #75 to #71 - silverhellion (05/22/2013) [-]
english originates from britain.

American English, the English spoken in America. Exactly how long ago should we have conquered the place in order to be native? The "native americans" weren't there originally, either.

first HUMANS to settle the continent, asswipe.

do you have the brainworms?. beside, Americans only spell a few things different anyways, there's almost no difference.
User avatar #86 to #83 - schneidend ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
And the people who live in America now took the land centuries ago. My question stands: how long do the people need to be there before they get to be called "native."
User avatar #87 to #86 - silverhellion (05/22/2013) [-]
they'd have to be the first ones to settle the area, so never.
User avatar #96 to #87 - schneidend ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
History does not support that. That's white guilt talking. Nobody gets to just call dibs on a region forever. You wouldn't call a British person non-native just because his Anglo-Saxon, Roman, or Norman ancestors weren't "there first."
User avatar #97 to #96 - silverhellion (05/22/2013) [-]
genocide the native american populace, then you can call dibs.
User avatar #99 to #97 - schneidend ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
The Anglo-Saxons, Romans, and Normans didn't wipe out the Britons.

and also, north america was populated mostly by neanderthal, the homo erectus came along and slaughtered them, not to mention everything was once underwater, so technically shellfish were the original natives. Now, since whites control the grand majority of the land, and the natives have subjected themselves to us, we're the natives.

Native Americans were the first ones in the continent. many of their languages actually originated here
User avatar #73 to #71 - rockamekishiko (05/22/2013) [-]
User avatar #76 to #73 - schneidend ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
And it has different spellings, pronunciations, and colloquialisms in North America. Hence, American English.
User avatar #78 to #76 - rockamekishiko (05/22/2013) [-]
but it is not an american language at all. It's English with some cultural influences.
User avatar #125 to #78 - sabcy (05/22/2013) [-]
congratulations similar languages have similar starting points. Isn't that good that you noticed, because if I remember correctly every western language came from LATIN so are you saying that all languages, regardless of changes (which by the way american english is by far more complex and larger than british a.k.a. proper english) are all Italian?
User avatar #143 to #125 - rockamekishiko (05/22/2013) [-]
yes they are all italian
