  • Word Spelling Question....

    This post is way out from left field, but since it involves a couple guys on this board, I figure I'd ask about it...

    The word "favorite" has been spelled two ways on this board. I spell it favorite, but I've see guys like Moses spell it favourite. Maybe it's just a regional thing, where different parts of the world spell it differently.

    I was just wondering if there's a correct way to spell it, or if both ways are ok. I've always wondered about it...

    And no, there is not a point to this thread if you're wondering.... :D

    Favorite is the way Americans spell it. Favourite is the way Canadians and others spell it, just like how they spell it colour.

    I thought everyone knew this. :?

    Thanks to jkpigskin

      In English it's supposed to be favourite. America doesnt seem to like the use of the letter 'u' in a lot of words, colour being another one.

      edit, ^^ great minds etc etc
      What if everyone simultaneously disobeys?
      It aint a game if no one plays, oh.

        Apparently not or I wouldn't be asking...

        I just never was told why people spell them two different ways, so I asked....

            Scott is from America, therefore it should be spelled "favorite" on his board. :D

                          Americans decided to change how a lot of words are spelled for some reason. Another interesting one is donut instead of doughnut.

                            actually i recognize both and im american... i think we changed our language to more so seperate up from the brits during the revolutionary war. kind of a way to supress the crown and give us american our "own" language if you will.

                              theater
                              theatre

                              Different places you go to will spell their theater name differently.
