Which countries are known for speaking this type of Spanish? In El Salvador they use the word Vos a lot but I never knew other Hispanic countries didn't. I've seen comments on youtube people saying it's annoying hearing Vos instead of Tu but El Salvador also uses tu. What else is the difference between Spanish and Castilian Spanish? El Salvador doesn't speak Spanish like Spaniards do from what I hear, that's more like Argentina and other South American countries.

Voseo is no longer used in Spain but totally the norm in Argentina, Uruguay, some Central American countries and also heard in some areas of Colombia, Mexico, Venezula & others that I'm leaving out.

Voseo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Peninsular Spanish(Spain) is diverse, the madrid accent is different from the one in extremadura.

Vosotros form is used in spain but non existent in Latin America, except in church.

I don't really hear peninsular Spanish from argentines or any where in Latin America, they are very much distinguishible in my opinion.

YouTube is your tool to hear the varying accents of Spanish speaking countries.

Isn't New World Spanish, despite the varying dialects that exist today, descendant from Castilian?

No, New World Spanish descends:

In the case of Spanish spoken in the Caribbean, Caribbean basin and the US (Florida, Loousiana), it comes from the Canarian dialect, from the Canary islands.

In the rest of Latin America: Western Andalusian.

Barcelona and most of Andalucia (mispelled?) did not like me pronouncing the Madrid way (speaking the ci ce ze zi words with a lisp)....they found it elitist.

Ok thanks. Most of the US would fall under Western Andalusian and the majority is Mexican.
