sometimes colour, sometimes color.
Color. I am American.
I'm from New England and wish i could consistently say colour.
Trying to help myself to a snobby Brti accent as well.
Only Amercian spelling allowed: gray in combination with Noghri. Burned itself into my memory.....
It's the way I was taught at school.
Colour, seldom color
Color, because it is shorter and I see it more often than colour.
I'm calling out all people, we must change the travesty of a result in this poll and show the world (as in, Americans... close enough) how to spell!!
Do it baby!
I'm with you, Tyi!
Well, I'm American, so I went with color. However, with a HP fan fic background, as well as learning British English in school, I usually end up using them interchangabley. All depends on my mood, really.
Color, my friends. Color.
Color of course.
you say potatoe.. I say potato....
you sat tomatoe.. I say tomato..
lets call the whole thing off....
I'm an American, and I'm not proud of it.
Well, move to Australia then...
I honestly couldn't agree more.
Yeah, when Americans aren't removing it from words it has every right to be in they're misprouncing other words it's in: it's aluminium not aloominium.
C'mon people it's spelled "color" not "colour." Everytime they spell it with a "u" I shake with anger. "colour" Oh, God. "colour" No please stop! "colour" Agh! Stop it! "colour" [bleep] "colour" I said stop it for the love of God! "colour" Damn it! Stop! "colour" That's it. *hits head on table* "colour" *Disappears*
But depending on what I'm writing ( for school, fanfic) and the reason (genre, time frame), I might say "colour." It all just depends, but "color" comes to me more naturally.
