The English language in the United States - Perfect translation service

The English language in the United States greatly differs from the English of Great Britain or Ireland. American English has many instances in which its intonation and pronunciation differs greatly from those of British English as well as many words and phrases that are either unknown or used differently on the British island. We want to enlighten you a bit more on how the differentiated development of the various English dialects came to pass as well as provide you with a little insight into the history of this language.

One language - many dialects

After Christopher Columbus discovered the continent, it was until a while later that the first major wave of settlers arrived to populate the "New World". Over the centuries, more and more Europeans left their homelands to try their luck in this newly discovered, still hardly explored continent. Most of these new settlers came from England, Scotland, and Ireland, so it was not long before English became the common language for communication in the New World. Because English is easy to learn and its grammar is understandable, even immigrants from other European countries such as Germany, Italy, and France soon began to speak English. This mixture of various European languages eventually led to the creation of American English, which differs strongly from British, Scottish, and Irish English. Generally, it can be said the further West you go, the more the spoken language deviates from British English. For example, the English spoken in New York City is relatively similar to the high English in southern England, while Texan English differs so greatly that even the British can often barely understand it. These differences also play a very important role in translations.
