British english Vs American EnglishAlthough the name of the language is the same across many countries, english is by no means a static, rigid set of rules. Like other languages, english has evolved and will continue to change over time. The english that England?s sixteenth century people knew and carried with them to colonize foreign territories is now quite different from the language that they currently speak, and it is found in varying forms in all of the countries that now claim english as their primary language.
