wtf British and Americans speak the same language just with little differences

What is the difference between how Americans write essays and how Brits write essays?
#21 - Loppytaffy (02/10/2014) [-]
The grammar, the word order, the choice of words used, the amount of self opinion put into them (I've seen Americans fail a test for believing in Darwinism when the teacher does not), the way things are spelt, what is okay to say and what is not. Even the structure of the titles.

The difference between American English and British Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Filipino English is huge.
Hell, I've seen Americans substitute words for accent; Dawned became donned, Era became error, Metal became medal.
Not to mention "our" words like colour, "lt" words like spelt, S's becoming Zs, hiccough becoming hiccup, and hell they way Glouchester and Worchester are said just makes me plain shudder.

Yeah, British English is actually more of a bastardization than American English, in spite of your painfully unwarranted assholery too the contrary.
"For example, standard American English has retained the pronunciation of the final “r” in words like “father” and “mother,” while British has lost it. Americans have maintained the “flat a” sound of cat in words like “path” and “class” whereas the British have replaced this sound with the “broad a” of “father.”
Americans also fully pronounce all syllables of words like “library” and “dictionary,” but the British shorten them to “libr'ry” and “diction'ry.” Algeo shows us that in all of these examples and many more, the American variation is closer to the original sixteenth century version than the British one.
Modern English really starts with Chaucer, who marks a break between earlier English (with strong Saxon, Angle, and Norse roots) and the language of the Home Counties (which borrowed heavily from Norman French, both in vocabulary and grammar).
American English has evolved much less than British English since the Founding Fathers landed at Plymouth Rock; so it retains many elements of Early Modern English (Fall for Autumn, Gotten as a past participle, Digged in many American dialects). So American English is closer to early forms of Early Modern English (the language of Shakespeare, Spenser, and Chaucer).
Much of American English is older than British English. In fact, some words such as 'pavement (In the American sense),' and 'fall (to mean the season),' which are generally regarded as American terms, are simply holdovers from Middle English. As well, in most cases where Americans "dropped" the U, the American spelling predates the British one. 'Favor' is centuries older than 'favour,' for instance."

Wow now that's some grade A bullshit, right there.
Are Canadians going to tell France that their French is wrong, now?
English is a language that keeps evolving as England does. And if Oxford says that an English word is spelt a certain way, then that is how it should be spelt.
And you're forgetting the different accents. I actually pronounce all of dictionary and like words, however I didn't used to when I lived further North. Same as people from Stoke have the Canadian thing where they extend the "oo" in book and like words. You can't say all Canadians originated in Stoke.

Are you just mad because it challenges your preconceived vision of the world with British English being infallibly right and American English being an inferior bastardization? I'm not saying that any dialect is "wrong" like you are, but I am saying that you're wrong in saying that "you're the only English speaking country that feels the need to further bastardize a language..." when much of American English's dialect is truer to the original English that British English.
Not only that, but Oxford spells words both ways (as in "color" and "colour") as both are acceptable forms of the word.
