BrE??[edit]

I have never seen this abbreviation ever used for British English, it's often "English (British)" "EN-GB". It should be changed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marccarran (talkcontribs) 17:29, 12 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Realise/ize[edit]

There's a picture on here comparing spelling differences between the UK, USA, Australia, and Canada. It says the UK sometimes uses the USA's 'ize' ending for words like 'realise'. I'm a Brit and have never seen this happen, nor have I known anyone to use it or even heard of the like. Surely it's inaccurate? Dyaluk08 (talk) 22:33, 19 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's called Oxford spelling. It's common enough in certain academic imprints, but isn't 'standard' British English. Girth Summit (blether) 22:36, 19 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have found a video about British accents (20 British Accents in 1 Video), but I do not know whether Wikipedia will accept it. תיל"ם (talk) 15:41, 16 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
