“We (the British and Americans) are two countries separated by a common language”, asserted world-renowned playwright, G.B Shaw and rightly so.
The diversity prevailing in both spoken and written English further corroborates the difference between American and British English.
English originated in England in the 10th century A.D and was introduced in America in the 17th century by the British Empire. British Colonialists introduced the English Language in other colonies as well which adopted the language with little modifications. Americans, however (in the real sense of the word) Americanized English completely.
The American spellings are different from their British counterparts. Also, usage of Grammar and Syntax structure varies in both countries.
Let us look at the difference in spellings between American and British English:
*Surprise surprisingly remains Surprise in American English. Overgeneralizing the rule may lead to some errors.
*Management does not become Managment in American, so take care.
The above list of differences is not all-inclusive but will definitely come in handy!
Using correct spellings in your copy will reflect very well on your merit as a copywriter especially when the content you are working on is country-specific and sensitive.
So spell correctly and keep up the Quality!
