    Yeah, sometimes Microsoft's automatic helps can be more nuisance than help.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    Also I think the other difference is that Cortana tries to adapt to the different accents.

    Well, yeah. It's perfectly safe to express displeasure at Microsoft "help".

    looking at my cortana settings, it has it's own language setting. So it should be separate from the keyboard and PC language settings.

    I think that's a fairly recent change. It used to be tied into the PC language settings, with no option to change it.
