Where From?
« on: June 11, 2004, 03:30:01 AM »

I'm guessing a lot of people here are English. Or British. Which do you prefer? Anyway, I see a lot of English spellings like colour and favourite, so it seems like most people are from the UK! Well I was just wondering!

I'm from the USA but I still use the British spelling of "favourite".  I dunno why, it's just a thing I do lol.

I too have had a long-time habit of UK spellings for such words as favourite or colour, even though I'm a Yank.

It just seems right, somehow, even tho it's entirely unnecessary.

I'm from Canada and I spell it "favourite" and "colour." And here, "Z" is pronounced "Zed" not "Zee."

Yeah, I forgot Canadians use the English spellings. So it seems like there really aren't many people from the UK around here after all! Hmm.

I think there are actually only a couple of us Brits on the forum!

I wonder why America removed all the "U"s from their words. Anyone know?

I think the U is unecesarry in most of those words. Maybe we're lazy and didn't want to take the time to write the extra letter! You'd think their would be more Brits around here seeing as how the Beatles are from there! We've adopted them as our own though! "Our Beatles are better than your Rolling Stones!"-HS

Why are all the best bands from England anyway? And then what happened? I mean who's come out of there lately? And are there any British rap groups? That would be strange. Rapping with a British accent!!
