What kind of English is this?
English has many variations in grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and
spelling. I am an American from the Midwest, and my English,
particularly my pronunciation, will reflect that. However, I moved out of
the Midwest in 1993, and have since lived in California, France, Morocco,
Pennsylvania, and Costa Rica, so my accent is no longer truly Midwest - it is a fairly
generic American accent.
As a general rule, keep in
mind that whatever I say on this site and however I say it refers to English as it is spoken in
the United States. Whenever possible, I will also point out terms and
pronunciations used in other English-speaking regions, particularly England.
