Mozilla Firefox's dictionaries: US English vs British English
Oce Eeco stashed this in Web Culture
British English is twice the size of American English?!
These are browser dictionaries so it's not the most accurate source but I found it funny!
Apparently imgur user sub was a bit upset haha, I love taunting northern american communities. They are so eager to joke about other cultures and have such a bad time accepting that we do the same. ;)
By the way, look at the French one. : D
Yeah, Americans need to have more sense of humor about ourselves!
Why is French so big??
I think there are two reasons, first it's an old language to witch we gladly add foreign words all the time.
Second, it has some special characters like é è à î ï ô that may require larger variable types.
Like long-strings instead of just strings, something like that.
Ah, okay, that makes sense. Canadian English is tiny!
