    I'm American, but I still spell things such as colour the correct way. Screw Microsoft.

    Color is the correct spelling lol. Webster tried to simplify the English language which is why we Americans don't spell it colour. Note: try spelling color your way on here. :) hah

    Edit. I fixed my messed up spelling of colour

    Do you realize that it told you had a misspelling on that word? Oh and Color, no need to down rate me for it either.
    - buddyfoeva October 17, 2010, 11:06 am
    I was correcting color. And also, I didn't down rate.

    I know what you were trying to do but I am American and use the simplified English I spell color, flavor and airplane.

    *spelling shudder*

    simplified is a glorified way of saying... I'm too lazy to put in the "u".
    - Dragkyre October 17, 2010, 5:06 pm
    Amen! I am lazy and proud. Yet, I still use damn near perfect grammar. :p

    @buddyfoevea I think he was talking about in your post. You spelt it coulour not colour lol sorry if I'm just stating the obvious.
    - 24paperwings October 17, 2010, 6:09 pm
    you realise you spelt that 1st one "coulour"?
    - Dragkyre October 17, 2010, 6:15 pm
    As a matter of fact I did not. This whole thing probably could of been avoided if I had.
    - buddyfoeva October 17, 2010, 6:29 pm
    Well it's not that I'm lazy. I was raised to spell it this way. It's like Mexico and Spain they each speak Spanish however they don't have the exact same spellings either. It's easier for a large multicultural nation to spell it our way.

    You do realize you should be speaking the language of Herr Fuhrer, right?

    Color is the correct spelling in simplified or 'American' English, however, because Microsoft is American it is spelt this way, although, most people don't change the spell checker to English 'UK' so still continue to have these problems of American spellings :D

    its because the correct way to spell Colour is with the U in it. But americans seem to think that they can get away with incorrectly saying color without a U. Good old Mac's English UK is telling me that color is wrong and colour is correct. High Five Apple!
    - SkinnyBill October 17, 2010, 10:57 am
    saying colour without the "u" is my way of payback for the word Aluminum.

    *dictionary.com reference*

    1812, coined by English chemist Sir Humphry Davy (1778-1829), from L. 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 element names ( sodium, potassium, etc.).

    "Aluminium, for so we shall take the liberty of writing the word, in preference to aluminum, which has a less classical sound." ["Quarterly Review," 1812]

    a less classical sound? wtf? alright guyz, whutever.

    i always spell it colour and it nevers say im wrong so not all americans use shortcuts and no miss splling is not a short cut
    - castlewarsisawsome October 17, 2010, 4:49 pm
    read it... AlumINIum... not Aluminum
    - SkinnyBill October 18, 2010, 6:29 am
    People are gonna read it how they want and were raised. Any American will say Aluminum and if your not they might say it Aluminium but neither is wrong.

    it's funny how languages change. words like: centre, olde, theatre, and even "shaxpere's" name. they decided its better to spell them all "center, old, theater, and shakespeare" .... ive used parents/grandparents books for school, and got marked wrong for how i spelled those words in research papers.

    The fact that a literature teacher marked "shaxpere" wrong on a paper (and didnt recognise the old spelling) made me want to rip her degree off the wall and beat her with it.
