Americans came from England originally. Therefore, we speak English.

Finnaly a good point but if it was, why isn't it listed as our country's native language?

They won't change it. Deal with it. And you do speak English, you just use some different words than we would in England.

God damn it, type in a font where I don't have to squint to read it.

And there is no such thing as "American" as a language unless you're talking about what Native Americans spoke.

What i'm trying to get out is that not just do we speak American, we all speak it in an Accent. Arabic/Hebrew are really the starting point of languages!

Accents are just the way you pronounce words, they don't change what language you're speaking.

If you speak American, does that mean I speak Australian?
No, I speak English, so why would you have to speak American, Its called English for a reason, The Brits invented it, both our countries used it..

Edit: Reading that last post, That means that the "gangstaz" around the hoods need to stop swearing, Thats Aussie mate....

1. Russia in no longer Communist.
2. The soviet Union was not the only Communist nation.
3. Just because I live in America means I have to be capitolist?

Seriously, what is your point here. Because I have no idea. Are you trying to say English should be changed to American, because you guys have different accents to us?

Nice ninja edit..

First of all, thats like us Aussies kicking the New Zealanders and telling them to speak "New Zealandian" because they say "Fish and Chops" instead of "Fish and Chips".

Second of All, I have a killer Aussie Accent, but I'm happy with saying I speak Englisha nd not Australian, so why should you get to say you don't speak English, but American?

It's convenient that all these December members join and go straight to Gen Chat instead of the GTA boards. It's almost as if they've been here before..

Mandatory on-topic comment: You're wrong, I'm right. It's not American, it's English. Blah blah blah. Then we can wait for some Brit to come in and "correct" us since re-arranging a few letters around or removing/subtracting some is such a f*cking crime even though we're seperated by the ocean, we're somehow supposed to have an exact replica of their slang, spelling, etc.

The United States doesn't have an official language. If you look at the individual states that have official languages, you will see English listed as English, not 'American'. American English consists of lots of accents, dialects and a few spelling differences, but it's not a language of its own. You might want to read just a little before you pronounce the absolute truth for all to hear..

Of course, noone is telling you you can't put on a blindfold, stick fingers in your ears and tell yourself that you are right no matter what the rest of the world says. Perhaps you and the ten other people who agree with you can start a club where you speak 'American' instead of English. orly.gif

By your logic, Mexicans speak Mexican, Brazilians speak Brazilian and BoggsforLife speaks dumbass.

I love that since some people join in December it means they started playing GTA, or coming here, on there reg. date. I've been coming here fora bit over 2 years now, I just recently decided to come.
