Abstract

We know that English is the most widely-spoken language in the world and this world-wide language is spoken with a great number of regional accents, dialects with significant numbers of native speakers in almost every major region. In such a situation an understanding of the nature of English can be claimed unambiguously to be of world-wide importance. The English language is not a single, homogeneous, stable entity: it is a complex mixture of varying structures, and one unfortunate thing is that so many people look upon this as an unsatisfactory state of affairs and try to correct it. But preferable way is to get enough information about the regional varieties of the English language. It is difficult to comprehend such kind of differences for foreigners, English learners and for students doing a research, especially, on dialects. While learning English language they usually compare this language with their own. That’s why in this article comparative method was used for differentiating the main points of the target languages. British English was compared with American English, some differences and similarities with the Azerbaijani language were intended to show in this article.
