and what pray tell, will be the official position on American/British spellings eh? I have a lot of contempt for Mr Gates & his bleeding spell check function on MS Word - it's seriously messed my life up these past few years. I don't know anymore whether it's neighbour/neighbor, favour/favor, flavour/flavor, defenceless/defenseless and the rest of that rubbish. That's just spell check - grammar check is totally evil. Apparently I don't know how to use commas, full stops, colons/semi colons or any punctuation. Spell check is like an opium habit.

This idea blows, Jeff. Not because you aren't correct in what you say. You most certainly are, but your species spell many things incorrectly! Which language option would you deem the most appropriate?





Yours sincerely,
Interference's laziest speller and grammar checker

You say 'erb. We say Herb because it has a fucking H in it!

It's a good point, I'm surpris/zed the decision makers at America's haven, dictionary.com, haven't dropped the "h" in herb. In fact, now that I think about it, the "e" and/or the "r" could also be omitted.

have any of you plodded over to have a hand at literati recently on yahoo games? Three years ago (when I did) I had to regularly be flayed with words like: eh, aab, ze, skat, umm. I fear for my life most when I use any kind of spell checking program.

I think God was quite inventive when he put Canada smack between the US & England. Between the two, I prefer English English, so, it is indeed annunciated 'erb' I reckon.

(spelled with a/an "h" of course)

Oh, and do you know the difference between:
"centre"
"center"

5 gold stars for anybody who doesn't have to use a dictionary
