Well I am very interested in American English language and speaking (accent). In India it's usually British English but I want knowledge about American English.

  • There are too many to list, but two of the most glaring differences are: one, the removal of U in the Latin-loanword suffix -our (e.g, 'favour' becomes 'favor', thusly 'favourite' becomes 'favorite', etc.); two, the change of S to Z in the verb-forming suffix -ise (e.g., 'specialise' becomes 'specialize'), notably not 'incise' or 'circumcise', for the suffix in those verbs is '-cise', meaning 'to cut', and notably not the verb 'size', for that is a verb formed from the noun 'size'.
