I was not familiar with some of the American words despite the fact that I am an American. I question the accuracy of this.

That`s pretty outdated and inaccurate, although some of it is right, and it`s fun to look at.

I`d also question the accuracy and the need to compare Canadian and American

I don`t think they need to list all those words, only the ones that stand out. It would make it more practical and cooler.

Um... thats rather inaccurate. I use the British and Canadian words listed there constantly, as do many people I know.
