19 Confounding Discrepancies Between American English and British English

So here we are again to talk about some differences between American and British English. Interestingly, I, that try hard to show my students that these two variations of English language are not significantly that different, have lately come across a number of articles which show the opposite, especially when it comes to vocabulary.

I have published all of them here, such as Ten Differences Between UK and US English and Why We Have Both “Color” and “Colour”. They are all worth your time!

But today I’m writing to suggest 19 Confounding Discrepancies Between American English and British English, an article that brings up a number of words and/or expressions which have different meanings and can cause misunderstandings if misused. These are definitely important cases, because such thing could affect the effectiveness of communication. So what out for that!

Check out the articles and have fun speaking English!

Cheers,
