    see me at my new forum

    how do i get the bad luck spell(that's the name of it)

  • @seibert999 said: P.S. you spelled colors wrong

    You should try learning English before trying to correct it ;)

  • Yeah actually in most cases, the american u-less version makes more sense, but it's still never wrong to use the british version.

    Goodness, you make it sound like the English language itself makes sense. It's messed up through and through, as though it's a rough draft of a written language.

    *cough*cough*

    I'm going to go back into hiding again.

    What doesn't make sense to me is how when Americans say it, they sound like they are saying "colour" with heavy emphasis on a "ou" sound. But yet they spell it "color".

    Also "ALUMINIUM". Why drop the letter "i"?

    And "CARAMEL" Why drop the letter "a"?

    How does it make more sense?! Surely sticking with original English spelling makes more sense because it still contains the letters of the original word etymology from whatever it came from e.g. old French.

    But in the end, neither one makes more or less sense. It's just the way it is!

    P.S. I think the spelling of "WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE" is what doesn't make sense.

  • this topic has been so derailed its actually ridiculous...cue jake...

    The second "O" in "color" (American pronunciation) is a schwa. Schwas can literally be written with any vowel or even none at all.

    Also "ALUMINIUM". Why drop the letter "i"?

    Technically, you guys invented the word "aluminum". The extra "I" wasn't added anywhere until later.

    And "CARAMEL" Why drop the letter "a"?

    And you've totally lost me. The correct American spelling of the word is "caramel" with both A's. "Carmel" only even passes my spellchecker with a capital C, and that's probably because there are cities named "Carmel", but the candy is "caramel".

    They must just be spelling and saying it wrong then.
