Mixing American and British English
multilingo posted a topic in English Language | DiscussionI grew up in the country where although we have American Standard English as the second mother language, I noticed that somehow, a lot of us have problems spotting words, spelling that differentiate between American and British English. When I was in college and was taking Journalism in my early semester, how many times I found myself mixing this up. My professor told me that there is actually no problem of using either one or the other. But the thing was, he wanted that if my article is written in American standard, then I just have to make sure that I stick to it, which means, there should not have any British English words hanging in there. But often, he always found one or two words. Anyone who can relate to this?
