So true

I was thinking about how the Americans have butchered our language and decided to list a few 'key' words they have spelt incorrectly. I have shown the correct version, then the American version and noted the letter that is wrong:

English ---------------> USA

pyjamas -------------> pajamas --------- Y
moustache ----------> mustache ------ O
colour ---------------> color ------------- U

mollusc ------------> mollusk, ---------- C
encyclopaedia ----> encyclopedia ---- A
bannister ----------> banister ---------- N
carburettor --------> carburetor ------- T

cosy -----------------> cozy -------------- S
sulphur -------------> sulfur ------------ P
enquiry -------------> inquiry ---------- E
fuelling -------------> fueling ---------- L
labelling ------------> labeling --------- L




(This is a joke, by the way)

Definitely some words are spelt of the way in Spanish, in fact there are words there in your post that are similar to my native language.

Good job Jessica.
