I have been over in the states a long time now - 13-14 years. I get mad at my English friends when they come out with the typical crap complaining when I spell in an American fashion now. But there are still some words that just grate on me when I hear them pronounced in an American fashion.
The chief of these are Iraq and Iran. I have never heard anyone call the country Eye-ndia or Eye-srael. Also the inability of any American I have yet met to correctly say Edinburgh.
As for words themselves, I can never, despite having raised a child here, find the word ‘diaper’ anything but plain wrong.
Any other ex-pats here with any to add?
