    Historical fact: it was Noah Webster who Americanised / Americanized spelling - not just the "u" and the s/z but also theatre became theater, plough became plow & axe became ax. Some of his suggested changes did not stick. For example he thought "tongue" should be spelled "tung", just as he had dropped the "ue" from catalogue and analogue. Being Canadian, I prefer the UK spelling ;-)

    If I remember correctly the reason for a lot spelling differences is the influence of French on English and America wanting to break away. A lot of English words and spellings have been influenced by French despite English being a Germanic language. So for example both spellings of theater/theatre were used until about the 1660s when the "re" ending became favored (pun intended). Around the time of The American Revolution a man named Noah Webster wanted to create a language standard for America so he published his own dictionary with new spellings. A lot of his spelling focused on simplifying words and having the spelling more similar to the way the word is actually pronounced. It's kind of ironic because American English is arguably closer to English's original Germanic routes, whereas British English seems to be more heavily influenced by French. This article explains it pretty well if people are interested in further readings www.grammarly.com/blog/theater-or-theatre/

    Not quite understanding the amount of people in these comments being so up their own asses about how to spell things "correctly" as if dialects aren't a thing. We're talking about two countries that have developed separately from each other for over 200 years, which would naturally mean that the way we say and spell things are just different. A lot of you are taking this shit way too seriously.

    There is nothing wrong with being English, American or any other nationality. But it's really quite telling that Rachel Weisz got a huge applause from the audience by saying she would raise her child to be human instead of English or American. She can raise her child to be whatever she likes, but it's quite laughable to see politically correct cliches, like the word 'human', to get such a warm reception from an indoctrinated celebrity sycophant audience inside the New York bubble.

    • Jon B
      Jon B 13 дней назад

      +Blue24 I am not triggered, and whenever people resort to name calling it only proves they are losing the argument. Scandinavian countries, particularly Sweden, are often trotted out by the left as shining examples of socialist successes. But they're not. Johan Norberg points out in his well known documentary about Sweden that it is not a socialist country, because the government does not own the means of production. In fact, the the economic system of Sweden is widely misunderstood. Countries do not become prosperous through socialism. They become poor like Venezuela. People, who support the group think and peer pressure surrounding Bernie Sanders and cheer like howling ninnies when Rachel Weisz takes a subtle swipe at nationalism and Brexit, should really take the time to understand the world they live in.

      ​+Jon B Boy are you triggered ... coming back a day after your comment and needing to respond again despite not getting a response.
      Again - you pretend right-wing politics and the politics of Venezuela are the only two options. How are the Scandinavian countries doing it terms of economy and standard of living? I assume you will be able to answer that without focusing on specific short-term variations in the economy that happen in ALL countries.

    Or like the world "schedule" UK, they pronounce it shed-ule, and in the US its pronounced sked-ule. The US spells words like they're pronounced phonetically... Thanks to Noah Webster. He wanted to assert a cultural independence in the form of language. Kinda like a "stick it to the man" type of philosophy when it came to Britain.
