Hi all, First off, I'm quite new to this forum, so I hope I'm putting this topic in the right place. If not, I apologize. So I've been trying to write a story, and it includes a large variety of characters. I've decided that one of the more important characters would come from London, England. As you may already know, British English can be quite different from American/Canadian English. This is my road block. I don't want to accidentally make my British character use North American English, as that could end up badly. On the other hand, I can't force my character to use British cliches, as that would just be strange. I'm hoping that someone with good knowledge on the differences could help me with this situation. What are the little things that make British English different from North American English (in dialogue)? Words that are different? Commonly used phrases that exist/don't exist? Commonly used slang? My character is female and about seventeen years old. What kind of things should I tweak in her dialogue to make sure she is actually from London? Thanks a bunch.
