We in North America say "math". The British say "maths". Why?

Also, why do they put an "r" sound on the end of the word "saw", a word which contains no "r"?

Are they totally mad...or do they just do it to be annoying? ;-)

Give a listen to what US Northeasterners say, Little Hawk. I was amazed the first time I heard a Massachusetts man say 'drawRING' for drawing, not to mention 'idear' for idea. A friend of mine named Martha says that in the northeast she is frequently called 'Marther'.

President Kennedy said 'Cuber'.

John Kennedy said "shit down" instead of "sit down" too, didn't he? The "sh" sound was more subtle than it is in the common rude word, but it was there.

The definitive form of a language is that which is spoken in the capital city.

Like Parisian French is the definitive form of French. Therefore Cockney is the defifnitive form of English.

So LH. You bloody Colonials should spend your time learning English rather than trying to make your regional dialect the norm.

LH,

Some years ago I saw abrilliant tv series called The Story of English co-written & presented by Canadian Robert MacNeil - of MacNeil Lehrer Newshour fame. It was a fascinating bit of detective work tracking back English as it is spoken in various parts of the world, including specific areas of the U.S. and comparing it to the part(s) of England where people had migrated from. So there was Jamaican English, pidgin English, Oz English, etc and I remember that there was one area of the U.S. which was compared to a specific part of England in the north west, and the similarities were obvious.

BTW, Aussies often say "draw-ring" for "drawing", "idear" etc, but we say Pe-tah for Peter so if a girl is named Peta we can't pronounce it any differently than Peter.

I had an American friend who was living out here. She asked me where a street was which I had told her about. She said, "I can't find Chew-dah St in the street directory. I spelt it out for her as Tudor. She said, "You mean "Two-Door-r"? "Yes, that's what I said, Chew-dah."

Also in the north eastern state of Oz called Queensland, they often end their sentences with "eh". I don't know where they pikced that up from, eh?

A few years ago, I was on the Metroliner from NYC to Philadelphia and was seated next to folks who were travelling to Philadelphia from Boston. One gentleman asked me if I could tell him how to get to Macket Street once they get to the station. I told him that I had never heard of Macket Street. He said that he was told that Macket Street was one of the main streets in the city. I told him I was sorry, but I honestly had no idea where Macket Street was. He said that he thought City Hall was located at Broad and Macket. Oh, you mean Market Street...we all had a good laugh at that.

Probably the closest to a definitive English is what they call "Educated Southern English". But who cares really.

I just love regional dialects. I think the nicest sounding dialect is spoken in Herefordshire. But that's not trying to put down anyone else.

And thanks for those Mosquitoes, they were great planes.

At American universities, if one says he is taking or studying math, it is assumed that he is majoring (specializing) in mathematics.

In a pub in Scotland, as a green tourist, I couldn't find a certain street on my map. At the next table, the group was having a lively conversation in Scots; my eavesdropping yielded nothing I could understand. With misgivings, I went to the table and asked for help. I got it, couched in perfect OED English. As with Bobert here at Mudcat, some prefer to post in their regional dialect rather than the President's English.

I was introduced to the roundelay (roundabout?) in England, where I drove around one the wrong way. The rationale for these strange affairs is beyond comprehension to an American.

Giok, some years ago, an American mistakenly boarded an AirNZ plane at LAX hoping to go to Oakland. He arrived in Auckland somewhat confused.

A local firm here gives away prodigous amounts of advertising stickers promoting Drury Tires. It does, a little, but they sell tyres.

Minor peeves of mine are the NOT dropping the 'H', but preceeding it with 'an', as in "An horrific accident." So common that it is accepted as correct usage, nowadays. The other is the growing practice of pronouncing grown as growun. Oddly, I've never heard anyone pronounce groan that way. Perhaps because I can't remember hearing anyone actually pronounce groan, as opposed to giving one.

EVERYONE speaks English with an accent and a dialect, even Queen Liz. She, however, has a better excuse than most, having so few English ancestors.

Little Hawk, shouldn't you in your turn be thankful to De Havilland for allowing you to develop the aircraft industry that has served you so well for so long? (You can put a ring around that, mate!)

Isn't it amazing what different dialects of the same language can bring? What I find most interesting is not just individual words, but idioms and phrases within the language. What I find most amusing is when you translate a phrase verbatim from one language to another, the meaning is gibberish or insulting. It makes me wonder about some of the translation programs for computers really work in an attempt to create the ultimate Douglas Adams' babelfish.

On the web, I try to pretend that I can speak English, and so I can, just usually not as well as I write it.

I read a history of the Mosquito just last week. It was interesting in parts, but there were a LOT of lists and graphs and I never really finished it. A work of scholarship rather than entertainment. The plane was made as outwork by little shops all over the place, even in people's front rooms. Spruce plywood, so that probably came from Canada.

A lot of the differences come from the varying rates of development of the language in common use. In North America the advancement in development of the language was impacted and stagnated to a certain extent by the massive influx of non-english speakers during the mid to late 1800's.

Long, long ago I can remember being told that in the very early 1900's (1905 or 1911) there was a debate in the House of Representatives regarding the adoption of German in place of English as the official language of the US. The motion was only narrowly defeated (something like 12 votes). Now if that is correct, that might have made a bit of a difference to the history of the 20th Century.

I also don't say drawring, I believe it is people hearing what is more of an aspirant sound at the end of the w sound coupled with the following vowel sound which they, erroneously, think is an R sound.

Unfortunately stadiums is perfectly good English! Dictionaries offer either stadia or stadiums as valid plurals. Words that come from Latin do not necessarily have plurals in the Latin form (eg viruses/statuses etc).

Bill is an American, but is very well known in the UK via his books and TV appearances ( he lives - or lived - in the UK).

The use of "an" as the indefinite article before a noun starting with "H" is perfectly correct usage (if a trifle archaic).
Apparently the use dates back to a pronounciation change in English from the "French" silent H as in hour, honour, heir etc. to the harder aspirated "Germanic" H as in house, hotel and hair etc.
In short,'an' is technically acceptible (but not generally used) with all such nouns while 'a' is only acceptible for those with the 'hard' H. As yes, I do still use an hundred, an historian although strangely, a hotel.
