... is an oxymoron - there is no such thing, it is either American or English
Strictly speaking it's English as a language and there's American spelling (hail Webster) or British Spelling.
Americans tend to simplify things by writing things pronunciation-based, while the Brits are reluctant (to put it mildly) to give even a centimetre (centimeter in American spelling) or even worse, an inch.
Languages evolve and the official language is nothing more than a compromise reached over the years in order to facilitate communication between distant areas. Talking about distant makes me remenber that we drastically need 1 global language for interspatial communication (you can't expect the Martians to understand all Earth's lingos). I suggest Flemish
