American English spelling i think developed as so because it had an earlier separation from the main English language than Australia and New Zealand.

it was isolated a bit more so it became as it is....

Is it just me or does this thread seem confused...its sports,monarchy, poltics and other random things meshed into one....


wait its like a real conversation

I believe the difference in American English actually comes from Noah Webster's dictionary, which differs from the other dictionaries created outside the US.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

hmmm

language evolves anyway...the dominant language 500 years from now could be god knows what...

I would hate the idea that we end up with one World language or culture...

I love the variety in the world

stupid internet connection

anyway, as far as evolution of languages...there are certain people in the US that feel threatened by the possibility of Spanish becoming the preferred language of the majority of the country by I think 2050. Already you can see the two mixing in places. I do personally feel that when you come to a country you should learn the language, but some people are a bit xenophobic about it.

I agree with you LJT, I love learning about languages, cultures, etc.

Our differences need to be preserved as much as they need to be understood i think...

Even if one day we can colonise the likes of Mars...People on Mars would become their own and likely develop culturally quite differently to anyone on Earth....

Its kinda why i hate the idea of complete integration into a countries own culture...foreign people should be taught to understand and respect the native culture, but never to abandon their own.

I agree...I love that in my classes I'm with kids from Sweden, Iran, China, Bangladesh, Korea, India, Scotland, England, and Poland, as well as others I'm sure.

Wow, I don't know what killed this thread faster, the fact that it got moved to Put em Under Pressure, or the fact that we stopped making insults towards each others' nationalities and started discussing cultural diversity.

From hot dogs, johns, and a supposed Bono-sighting behind a base to colonizing Mars...that's a lot of ground to cover! I'm very impressed with our wealth of knowledge....or, at least, interest!

I have a strong feeling Metallica or Bono Jovi Forums can't compete with us.

I missed all the spelling arguments.

See, one should never do physics assignments when one could be browsing the Internets instead!!!!!!££! This thread really is quite something. Just so that I don't feel left out:

1.) The thought of Bono at a baseball game makes me bilious.
2.) Baseball is stupid.
3.) American football is stupid.
4.) Australian sporting teams are stupid (and ugly.)
5.) I couldn't care less about the bloody Royal Family.
6.) colour, favour, flavour, theorise, realise, polarise (chance, dance, dismiss, apologise)
7.) Bono Jovi? What the hell, AOD?

Yes, yes, and more yes! (epecially number 4...'aint that the truth..pfft...take that, Aussies...and to think, some of them like u2!..)

I like the poetry there in 6....giving Bono a run for his money there!

Bon Jovi...I used to love them greatly but now I don't, so don't beat me!

From this post forward, I wish to be known as AOD! That's perfect! (wayyy too many guys are calling me Angel ) AOD gives me a certain street cred I've been lacking...I'm liking it already...
