Note to aomtte2: The United States of America is only part of the Americas (North America, Central America amd South America). Outside of North America, English is only spoken by a small minority of the populations. Classifying American English is one thing, because it does differ a bit from that spoken in Great Britain, Canada and Australia. Regional dialects in the states mainly differ in pronunciation, inflection and the contractions of words, not the usage of different words to mean the same thing. The central section of the USA is called the Midwest - not Central America, because Cantral America consists of Panama, Honduras, and all the other little countries in between North and South America.

And to further that note, if we are going to get into really specific dialects I would probably be able to get 24 different varieties of Australian English depending on type of accent (there are three) and regional variation (SA and WA have their own styles of Australian English which are in turn split into three further regional variations).

Also, the same could be said for British English, if you are going into dialect there then you can list plenty more languages.

Sorry, rushed again. I had to set up two topics in five minutes, and that was my mistake, should have said two topics instead of misspelling two and using posts. To-two, posts-topics.

THEIR IS NO DIALECT THAT IS USED BY ALL PIRATES!
