starting the prunounciation, the way people pronounce words are different. American Pronounce “R” more consistent than British speaker, because they pronounce “R” is the same in every sylable. in the other hand, British acent only prounce “R” if the word begin with “R” and drop the “R” sound if it’s in the middle of the first and the last word, then switch the “R” sound with “a” sound in the last word. for example : British say Funitua for Furniture, but American say Furniture since they pronounce “R” more consistent
next, vocabulary in particular word are not similar between British and American English. for instance, if they want to refer a woman’s headresses, – in the old time, women use head band with a cap – the will use different word which is “bonnet” for american and “hood” for British English. and not only that, British versus American English are using biscuit versus cookies if they want to mention about dried baked snack. in fact there are still many vocabulary differences which might confusing for non native speaker.
