Linguistic anomalies ive noticed

British and australians sound similar and americans and canadians are similar in dialect. British say words that end in a as er and vice versa, so do the ausies. Theyll say"americer, australier, canader" and "mista, teacha, nigga, brotha, fatha"
Interesting isnt it?
 
It's because the Australians were descendents of British prisoners so they still wanted to be similar to the British in their daqan and whatnot since they came from an embarrassing bloodline.

The Canadians and Americans wanted nothing to do with the British so they made up their own dialect.

Its probably more because australia is more recent colony compared to america which was mideival and thus more similar in dialect
 
Australians are descendants of British criminals. Their dialect is supposed to sound similar.

A dialect changes because of mainly two reasons,

1. Isolation from the original language
2. Contact with other languages

I have a suugo-science theory that dialects evolved faster before written language, in more primitive civilizations. Everything is documented today, and people are generally more educated which leads to less evolvement, or derailment on the languages/dialects. We live in a globalized world, so isolation is not a factor anymore.

The first British Americans were isolated from the "England English" speakers and came in contact with Native Americans. Also other settlers from Sweden, Spain, France, and the Netherlands.
