Re: Why can't you yanks deal with polysyllabic words?
It's called accents. Some Americans do say it right, some don't. Just because we aint proper like you tea-drinkers don't mean we aint educated.
Now, as a weak comeback to the "yanks" and "colonials" remark...you're just jealous because we beat you in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812.
Just joking really.
