    A tripthong (y + silent r + e = ai-uh (should have a schwa here, but can’t type one on my keyboard)). versus a mere diphthong (long i + silent e = ai).

    I bet Caulfield knows that, too.

    Copy the schwa from your computer’s character map.

    Theatre vs. theater. (Although we use the first spelling in American English for a different meaning, that of a wartime front.)

    Just remember: “The English and the Americans are two peoples separated by a common language!”
    George Bernard Shaw.
    “In some places English completely disappears. Why, in America, they haven’t used it for years!”
    Professor Henry Higgins.

    In England, they used to “draft” people into the military. Those soldiers would go to the pub to get “draught” beer.

    @J Ba, A good proportion are bi-lingual but most speak English, unfortunately their native languages are struggling.

    What I don’t get is why Americans call their language English and then spell words differently. Why not just call it American? You can spell things how you like then.

    Toodle-pip!

    My husband and were transferred to Italy, and were housed in an apartment hotel for a while with some British co -workers until we found permanent digs. We decided that both families would do something together on a Saturday morning, and were astonished when the English gentleman offered, I’ll come upstairs at nine and knock you up".
