  1. American is not a language. (Neither is Mexican, for the record. They speak Spanish in Mexico.) American English is a dialect of English, but the language itself is English.

  4. the distinction between ‘language’ and ‘dialect’ is hard to pinpoint. Do you want to argue, then, ok, you speak American English (maybe midwestern, southern, eastern seaboard American English??)
