What's American English?? I don't think that there is such a thing as "American English" America is a country and they speak American, England is a country and they speak English. The languages almost sound the same but some words and pronunciations are different. American is a language and English is another language, so whats all this hogwash about "American English?" We might as well have Thai English or Japanese American, How about Chinese Russian? Read the book "The Invasion of The Barbarians" and you'll get my drift.
