Americanisms – How many are you ‘guilty’ of?
Trust the BBC to come up with a list of 50 Americanisms that the British feel have insidiously infiltrated the English language and contaminated it. =) They claim that the English language has gotten (#15) worse because the media uses these Americanisms 24/7 (#4) that oftentimes (#27) we don’t even notice them! Going forward (#32), I’m not sure how much of this will be an issue (#45), but even if just a million and a half (#34) people use them, it could be significant. Not convinced? You do the math (#36). Period. (#42).
Have fun reading the full report here! =)
