- A: Do you speak English?
- B: What kind of English?
* There are many different versions of English around the world: British English, Scottish English, Irish English, American English, Canadian English, English of the Caribbean, English in Africa, English in Asia, Creoles and Pidgins, and Australian English are just a few.
The average English-speaking person uses the same 400 words 80% of the time. That means that over 400,000 other words in most Standard English Dictionaries often remain unused.
