    Thumbs up Difference between American and British accent

    Hi,

    Could you please help me with the major differences with American and British accents? The only difference that I am aware of is the rolling of R in American Accent and Britisher's Accent. Also Britishers say Zed for alphabet Z however it is pronounced as Zee by Americans.

    I would really like to know the differences as I have been assigned a project at my college and I am unable to find out anything on the internet.

    Please do reply,

    Thanks and regards,
    Rajshekhar
