I am American. So why do I spell things the British way? hehe I agree with Kristine - or maybe you are British/Canadian/Australian/British colony at heart. Why do Americans spell differently anyway? Why is it 'zee' and not 'zed'?
 
Re: Sick of being sick by ilse on 18 May 2003 11:02am
 
american english is probably spelled differently than british (australian, canadian, indian, etc, etc, etc...) english because the language was not yet standardized when america became independent. all the other countries that were colonies became part of the commonwealth and got their independence much later, right? or maybe americans are just so lazy we have to omit those 'u' s, like in colour/color.....or maybe whoever standardized the language in america was dyslexic(just to be clear, i'm not trying to make fun of dyslexic people) and replaced some 's' s with 'z' s and reversed some 'r' s and 'e' s, as in centre/center..........okay, now i'm just rambling. well this is 'blathering on' :)

It's quite funny in a way, the American language is built upon how the Brits used to speak 300 years ago.
It's the British that have changed, not the Americans. Both 18th centuary Yorkers and 21st centuary New Yorkers would spell colour 'color'

That is definately the most interesting way I've ever seen "Australian" spelled.
Cheers!
 
Re: Sick of being sick by sleepydumpling on 19 May 2003 7:42am
 
notquitenglish - that's pretty much how a lot of us pronounce Australian!!

(Particularly those of us from rural areas who can't lose their accents no matter how hard they try!)

Cheers mate!

Re: Sick of being sick by canaveralgumby on 20 May 2003 6:42am
 
fav word: solution (as in solving problems, not "7% Solution"!)

fav food: shrimp

fav color: pale blue, silver

better looking: George

fav Hitchc*o*c*k movie: Psycho

Why you spell things the British way:
If you, like me, have gone through the American public school system, then you, like me, have learned more about grammar, vocabulary, world civilizations and art history by watching Python than you ever learned in school! (Okay, that's an exaggeration...)
