Each region where English is spoken has its own accents and dialects that are the result of the local history and the non-English languages with which its people were familiar.

The Irish speak English with an Irish accent while the Americans speak it with their own, different accents.

Why are the Catholics and the Irish Protestants fighting?

AnswerAnswerThe U.S. media hasn't taken time to acquaint our short-attention span citizens of the background of the conflict. To listen to the media the only thing different is their religion prompting Americans to think the conflict is solely about religion. This is an unresolved colonial situation. The Protestants and Catholics differ in religion, ethnicity, historical experiences, and, at one time, language. The Protestants are descended from Scottish and English colonists introduced in the early 1600s to pacify the "Wild Irish" and have maintained a separate identity.Incidentally, a recent survey indicated that most Protestants in N.I. consider themselves British rather than Irish. So the term Irish Protestant may not apply to the North, although it could refer to a Protestant in the Irish Republic. Americans referring to Protestants in the North as "Irish Protestants" is not going to bring these groups closer.

How did the English depend on the Native Americans at first?

The English/Europeans were not used to the harsh winters that North America offered its inhabitants, and so the Native Americans saved the Europeans by showing them how to survive the winters when they first arrived. I hope that helps!
