    Actually, MIR, I think you would be wrong in the assumption that the US language is not well known. Sure, there are things I hadn't heard until I met JC (like "My bad"), but in countries that get a lot of American shows, we're well used to it.

    My young nephews once asked my in-laws about it. Since they had difficulty understanding us, they were concerned that we had the same problem. We didn't. LOL.

    The thing that amuses me about the US is that they slaughtered the Queen's english and expect that the rest of the world do it to. We shan't, I tell you! We shan't!

    I should have posted this earlier. But this is for Aroha, JC, and SprintL Texan-English Dictionary

    Now that is proper English.

      Hehe. Some of my favourite US comedians come from that area.

      The funniest accent to me is Minnesotan. I actually thought Fargo was made up. Then I talked to JC's grandfather. LOL.
