in thread My Favorite Holy War is:

How about 'American is just a corrupted form of English vs. English is what Americans speak and it's the definitive version'.

Should the parenthesis be on the next line, or the same line, and should they be indented with the parent, or the child? (I seriously recall a big argument about this at a place i used to work)

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Or, when often talking to both Americans and Britons:
    British English is English, American English is English with American accent
    American English is English, British English is English with British accent
    Entropy is the tendency of everything going to hell.
      What are talking about. They are both English with accents. Australian English is English :-)

        All of you are mistaken. The Engrish is spoken all around the world.
