The changes have traditionally been described as more systematic than they appear to have been in actual fact, but it is still a useful concept in observing the large-scale changes in pronunciation starting in the fifteenth century and completed by the eighteenth (Nevalainen 2006: 120–4). Some changes took place in most dialects, others were localised to the south. For example, the long /u:/ in words like house and out shifted into the diphthong /ou/, except in the north, where the old pronunciation is still heard.

On the one hand, the mix of dialects the settlers brought with them shaped American English. The Puritans settling in Massachusetts Bay were largely from East Anglia, and the Quakers from the north Midlands migrated to the Delaware Valley, while gentry with their servants from southern England moved to Virginia. The other main reason for the early separation of American English was colonial lag: it has been suggested that the pace of language change in the reasonably isolated colonies was slower than in the mother country, leading to a later adoption of changes in America than in England (Nevalainen 2006: 146).
