LOL!!!

On spelling etc, Atari BASIC that I first learnt used COLOR - that did not bother me at the time. We knew it was 'Wrong spelling' from our point of view, but we also knew it was the correct spelling for USA, and the Atari was an American product.

By the same token, as we spell it COLOUR, our American friends should return the favour.

You guys are used to deleting the odd letter here and there....

Who was it (Oscar Wilde ?) who said speaking of the US and England:
"We are two countries separated by a common language".
This is great fun. I don't care, Geoff - your choice. Pick one and use it !!

LOL...

G.B. Shaw wrote “England and America are two countries separated by the same language.” but sources vary a bit.

All this reminds me of the open letter to America that John Cleese wrote (as a piece of humoUr chaps!) in the debacle that followed the Bush/Gore election... it is still worth a read and touches on pronunciation quite a bit... but hate to tell you, "Aluminum" is arguably correct as it was the final version of it's name published by its discoverer, being "corrected" by editors four years later to bring it in line with other "Iums" (sodium, cadmium etc...)

Personally, I don't give a wet slap - it's just some words to learn.

enjoy

Revocation of Indepence

Quote:
Word Origin and History for aluminum
n.
1812, coined by English chemist Sir Humphry Davy (1778-1829), from alumina, name given 18c. to aluminum oxide, from Latin alumen "alum" (see alum ). Davy originally called it alumium (1808), then amended this to aluminum, which remains the U.S. word, but British editors in 1812 further amended it to aluminium, the modern preferred British form, to better harmonize with other metallic element names ( sodium, potassium, etc.).

CaptainBoing,

Quote:

I have even heard that quote attributed to Churchill but I know that's not right.

On aluminum I know the pronunciation is radically different between countries.

EDIT: I just read your Revocation of Indepence, that's funny

Well, I'm glad someone finally noticed that my perfunctorily feeble attempt at a reboot of the persistently perennial perambulation through the contrastingly divergent individuation of English usage resulting from the ill-considered and unfortunate attempt by an English monarch to tax British citizens who had been disenfranchised by his own actions and had therefore decided to brew his tea with salt water had been unanswered for two days! I was beginning to think that youse guys had decided to nod off or go off on a holiday.

I absolutely love John Cleese! The single thing he said that I feel I should quarrel with was his statement that "Generally, you should raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels". I judge that youse guys will shortly conclude that my pronounced proclivity or propensity to perambulate through a polysyllabic vocabulary is more confusing than the difference between color and colour could ever be.

All of which completely ignores the fact that my original question, "will BADSPELLING ON equate to driving on the right side of the road or the wrong side?" remains unanswered!

I ask all of youse guys to remember that Italians make you offers you can't refuse, but that Polacks make you offers you can't understand!

I trust that everyone knows that you can use either COLOUR or COLOR.

@geoff

Does the allowance of either COLOUR or COLOR consume two 'tokens' or just one?
