There is no British language; it's English. If a person was speaking Gaelic they would be speaking a British language but not the language most Brits speak. So we speak English and the Americans speak a heavily corrupted dialect of English called American English.
WHAT!!! YES THERE IS A BRITISH LANGUAGE!! It's called Welsh. Season uffar!
Shut your sheep shagging gob! XD
We shag 'em you eat em'.... oh and I've pi ss ed in the water you're drinking....
The British have an accent and speak what is known in the academic world as Proper English. The Americans speak a "lazy" English using a lot of phonics and slang.
:) every English speaking culture has their slang .... including the British.
The most universally understood English, and the most easily understood comes from .... India.
the king's english?
There is no king, so wouldn't it be the queen's english. Which brings up the questions, if it is the queen's english, and women normally speak more passively than men, shouldn't England be speaking passively?
way back when there was a king.
Language changes every day, the point is getting the meaning across :P
The two languages are slightly different. <br />
British movies released in the US should have sub-titles. It takes a while to catch up with the British tempo and run-on words, a couple of hours for me. By then the movie is ending :)<br />
Years ago I would to travel to England a least couple of times a year and would often bring gifts for friends in the US who had family in England. I'd call and visit the English friends to deliver the gifts and it was so much fun trying to sync with the British version of English.
The English speak
Quite many English people speak British.... it's called Welsh these days
Don't generalize here. Americans as a whole don't say the English speak British.
How about.."the ones you have met." I'm sure you haven't even met "most".
Translation. Some = One; Most = Two; Everyone = 3 or more.
Lol most hardly means two. Haha

Hardly sounds like a Brit, and, unless the are uneducated people, they still don't say "the English speak British".
How about American English?
Most Brits speak English,even the Scots,Irish and Welsh. Its not British its English
