Most Notable Differences

  • Instead of using American center, British centre is used. It is pronounced sen-tray.
  • It is so connected to British English that the word majour is used instead of major.
  • For some reason, citizen is written citiquexen. (si-ti-kwe-ksen)
  • The word "programme" is pronounced "pro-grah-mee".
  • Beside the exception above, silent "magic" e is not allowed, like home stays home but is pronounced 'homee'.
  • Fjords are fyords, like in New Zealand English
  • -tion is replaced with -shun in many words.
  • For words ending with -tem, it is changed to -temme, as "system" becomes "systemme", pronounced "sis-tem-may".
