I dunno why but this is something that i was curious about long time ever since talking to other people, how spelling some words, come to conflict cause it contradicts what i learned in school. Usually one who didn't know would say "You spelled it wrong, there is no U in color or armor" But is all due to not knowing the reason why people do spell it that way. If one knew, American English maybe fair to say is a very bad "port" Of Britian English. Use of port is just like anyone would describe video games from one console to another, is done perhaps rather poorly or unfaithful. While i am no expert on the american english with questions about it myself, the use of "Phone" Sounding like "Fone" Or "Knuckles" with unneccary K starting it cause is never sounded or pronounced, like pneumonia or pterodactyl. With so many unclear explanations, one will ask "Eh, what the heck is this?" There is some clear distinctions of things and not so clear, that is my point. The clear thing is, the American English is probably a bad rip off "Port" Of English from England. Suddenly wondering my self the use of some words contaning a U within them like "Colour" and "Color" The one without the U is how Americans use the word while With U the "Englanders" Use the word (If englanders is offensive, please let me know, i didn't know a better word to describe people from england) So i googled my question, and got few responses here is one. SOURCE There is more commets about it on the page but this wasn't as long, if i learned anything from being here is that people will complain to me about long post, so there you go. Anyway, if there anyone able to explain better i hope so, i usually get failed google search results or just bad infomration so there is that too. Teach on!
