If you merkins have a problem with how words are spelled you shoulda done your spelling changes properly instead of half-arsed (sorry, half-assed) dropping a few 'u's and stuff here and there (colour, doughnut). :P


Or we could all speak sensible languages that have consistent phonemic orthographies. Like Finnish. Or Italian. :yup:

To be fair, it's not that "some people" don't WANT to pronounce the L sounds in those words. It's that they can't because of their serrated tongues.
You are such a silly goose!
