umm...anita - it's the opposite with fag - in US English it refers to a gay guy - and isn't very nice. In UK English, it's a slang term for a cigarette
Thank so much.

I am unclear about the difference between spelling and transcription. Could you enlighten me?

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I believe s/he means this:

UK lever - /'li:vər/
vs.
US lever /ˈle-vər/

So, basically just the difference in pronunciation, although the spelling might be the same in both varieties.
yes sure, the main difference is the vocabulary and accent and pronunciation e.g. color - american and colour british
.
The alternative spellings color and colour have nothing to do with either accent or pronunciation.

Hey there

I didn't want to create another one topic named 'The difference between AmE and BrE', so I decided to write here. I hope nobody feels strongly about it.

A few days ago I found an interesting list of AmE/BrE vocabulary. And there are some words that I still don't trust.

For example:

American English
British English
Blue
Sad
Administration
Government
Assignment
Homework
Movies
Cinema
Quiz
Test, exam
Streetcar
Tram
Vacuum cleaner
Hoover


Is this list correct?
I never heard AmE variants above (English isn't my native language).

Do the Americans really say like that?
