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".
UM". Why drop the letter "i"?
MEL" 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.
