Top Ten Words Americans Misspell


The Top Ten

1 Reflexion ''Reflection''

Naturally, the noun form of the word reflect should be spelled completely differently for no particular reason. Stupid Americans.

All the top ten words except for should of and your are just variant spellings. Not wrong. - SammySpore

2 Colour ''Color''

Agree. Only the English should be able to change the way words are spelled. So when they took the word color from Latin and decided to change it to colour a thousand years ago to make it sound more French, the rest of the world should have to also adopt that spelling. Who do the Americans think they are going back to the original spelling?

Stupid Americans. Why do they even bother? Don't they realize that in every completely arbitrary way they differ from the British (accent, spelling, humour) they are inferior?

Oh, and the Americans are arrogant too.

Haha, brits care way to much about grammar and spelling. If you had half a brain you could figure out what people are saying when their grammar is not perfect. The fact that people actually believe you need good or perfect grammar to get anywhere makes me laugh. Look at George W. Sure people think he is a dumb hick (which is racist considering that's how most people from Texas speak, even the smart ones) but he is richer then you :P

The owner of this list, Do you know American English or what?

I seen that work on Sonic Colors. Weird - Chaotixhero

How dare they drop a superfluous Anglo-French letter. What's next? Not maintain a phony monarchy? How will the tabloids survive?

It’s the British-English versus American-English spellings. They’re both correct. - Hermione_Granger220
