Or there is only one english language and there are varities of uses or dialects?

For example :

Agreement in case (incorrect): Is that Shaneel and Donna over there? Yes It's them.
Agreement in case (correct): Is that Shaneel and Donna over there? Yes It's they.

The objective case them is incorrect. The nominative case they is the correct form, even though it may sound strange to your ears - from a book

I showed a friend of mine about this, and he said it is subject to 'kinds of english' that dictates the grammar ( British vs american english, etc..)

I think the book is wrong.

Remember grammar describes not proscribes (i.e. forbids).

Maybe grammar rules suggest that "It is they" is correct, but it is definitely not normal usage.

If somebody said, "It is they" in real life I would think they were unpleasantly pedantic.
Thank you clive, for making me feel stupid Emotion: speechless

So this means i can use Bre and AmE interchangeably? such as color and colour? At anon, i think the phrase 'it is they' is always in BrE, and what do you mean by describes? would this mean that 'i is happy' is correct on descriptive grammar? Emotion: hmm
Hi,
Thank you clive, for making me feel stupid I hope you are joking, as that certainly was not my intention.Emotion: embarrassed

So this means i can use Bre and AmE interchangeably? such as color and colour? I didn't mean there were no differences, but they are by no means major enough to refer to two separate languages.
