    Hi

    What kinds of differences are there between Spanish used in the USA and traditional Spanish? I would imagine Spanish in the USA is heavily influenced by English.
    What would the linguistic characteristics be?

    Hope that helps you a bit, I don't know much about the topic, I'm afraid.

    I would say Spanish in the USA would be more Mexican Spanish.

    The differences between Castellano (the regular Spanish) and Mexican-Spanish are mainly the accent and vocabulary. In South America, certain words have a slight English influence.

    I've heard many American kids speak in a mixture of Spanish and English, they don't just stick to one language during a conversation, very strange! but also sounds cool so based on that I would say it has a bigger English influence.
