Gotta Love “American”!

Hi tutors,

The Florida Literacy Coalition had a post on their Facebook page today that reminded me how much I enjoy American English in all of its forms and flavors.  Check out these maps that describe regional differences in English…from how we pronounce “caramel” to what we call carbonated beverages. Where is your linguistic home?
