But which kind of English. I obviously speak English-English, me being English and all that jass. What kind of English do you speak? I'd be interested to know how tFS-ers who aren't native English speakers pronounce words.

Personally, I much prefer the American 'mom' to the English 'mum' and also the way some Americans pronounce 'mall' like 'maul'.

must be my London education.. it's purely english/english to me, much more when spoken with a foreign accent... (love Marlen D. kind of english)

still if i was born in england, i'd probably add americanisms here and there..

I speak American English, New Yawk English to be exact.....that just means I add the occasional W to words that don't usually have them.

I actually don't really like one English better then the other but I do hate the slang some Americans come up with, but the English have slang too so I guess it's pretty balanced.

english english at school and american english at home/with friends has led me to adopt a subtle blend of the two englishes.

i pronounce more than half the world the british way though....i pronounce 'privacy', 'privicy' for example
