  1. There are differences in a few spellings such as colour, harbour, and theatre in Britain. Americans use color, harbor, and theater.

    Some common items have different names. Americans use a napkin to wipe their mouths while eating. The British use a serviette. Americans have a drink in a tavern or bar. British have a drink in a pub.
