Americanism
Noun

Americanism

  1. A custom peculiar to the United States or the Americans.
  2. A word, phrase or linguistic feature originating from or specific to American language usage.
    However, the -ize spelling is now rarely used in the UK in the mass media and newspapers, and is hence often incorrectly regarded as an Americanism.
  3. A preference to the United States and the ideas it represents.
