Today in 1790, the first American spelling book was copyrighted, and the Brits haven't stopped complaining about American English ever since. FYI, if our languages share enough grammar, vocabulary, etc., and are mutually intelligible? They're not different languages. It's all English, with national variations, much as Russian as variations when spoken as "Ukrainian" or "Belorusian". If all that changes in phonology (pronunciation), then it's in a gray area of "dialect". You have to change up a lot more than a few words and accents.
Consider Australian English. It has many dialect words, such as "bonzer" and "sheila", yet it's understandable to anyone from other English-speaking countries. American spellings vary, but it's understandable to other English-speakers. At the end of fuss-and-feathers? Yep, it's English.
No idea why that cam eout. I'm having trouble with documents in Polish from Mom's fam. The damn colloquialisms. they aren't in the dictionary!
