British and American English: what really came first?

HI guys

Been very busy, busy, busy! Among other things, I have been appointed to the management team of that fantastic Facebook group An Authors Tale, designed to support authors at whatever stage they are in their writing journey. Loving it – but it is a very steep learning curve.

So I just want to share an interesting article with you today from History Extra about whether American English is merely a distortion of British English or if three is something more to it.

So pour yourself a coffee, tea – or something a little stronger – and have a read through. Lots of after dinner conversation in this article!
