Passage 48. by John Eliot   American and British people both speak English, of course, but sometimes it does not seem like the same language. In fact, there are some important differences between British and American English. First of all, they sound very different. Often, Americans don't say all the letters in each word, especially consonants like "t" and "d." For example, Americans may say "I dunno" instead of "I don't know," or they may say "Whaddya say?" instead of "What do you say?" However, the British usually pronounce their consonants more carefully. Also, some letters have different sounds. For example, Americans say the "a" in "half" like the "a" in "cat," but the British say the "a" in "half" like the "o" in "soft." The "r" is sometimes said differently, too. When an American says "farmer," you can usually hear the "r." But you can't hear the "r" in British English. The British say "fahmah." Sound is not the only difference between British English and American English. The two languages have different words for some things. For example, the words for clothing are different. Americans use the word "sweater," but the British say "jumper." Americans wear "vests" over their shirts, but in England they wear "vests" under their shirts. An American man wears a "tuxedo" to a very fancy party, but an Englishman wears a "dinner-jacket." Americans talk about "pants" or "slacks," but the British talk about "trousers." Many expressions are also different in the two countries. In England, if you are going to telephone friends, you "ring them up." In America, you "give them a call." The British use the word "lovely" to describe something they like. Americans use the word "nice" or "great." There are also some differences in grammar. For example, Americans almost always use the helping verb "do" with the verb "have." They might say, "Do you have an extra pen?" The British often ask the question a different way. They might say, "Have you got an extra pen?" These differences can be confusing if you are learning English. But there is a reason for the differences. Languages change over time. When the same language is used in different places, it changes differently in each place. This is what happened to English. It also happened to other languages, such as French. Many people in Canada speak French, but their French is different from the French spoken in France.     Mark the best choice         1.   This article is about __________.
