Colours?

Here is hoping that the shipment of coloured readers comes in today! I'd love to have mine in hand by the end of the week.

As much as I love my country, and my deep south heritage, I still hearken back to my european heritage and add 'u's to many words. Colour, Flavour, etc.. Although I still use the suffix -ize instead of -ise.

How many generations back to Europe...

I'm into genealogy, and as much as I traced my family, the earliest (or should it be latest) I could trace back to the "old" country was in the 1500's.

Because part of my prep education occured in Europe, I often revert to alternate spellings and have caught grief for it consistently since returning 30 years ago. It must be that educational "law of primacy" that keeps dragging me back occasionaly to 'colours' even though I've spelled it longer the other way.

Interesting, I had not heard that if the first and last letters were the same it would still be readable. I'll remember that.


As a very imaginative female, and an aspiring writer, I thought it would be inventive if a book was written such that slowly over the course of the book, the words were changed so that be the end of the book, the text was an entirely different language, either a made up language or "foreign" language.

BTW I was just ribbing griffonwing... I read enough "Victorian" romances by English authors to recognize alternate spellings...

I'd love to be able to know my full family history, but I know very few people on my father's side of my family. I do know I'm close to 1/4 German. I'd love to travel there and see if I could track down some distant relatives. It was either my grandfather, or possibly my greatgrandfather, came from there.

I actually read a short essay (about 5 - 6 pages) exactly like this. It was long ago & I don't even remember where or who but it was interesting. As I remember it started with the letter "c" which almost always is pronounced like an "s" or "k", at which point the essay started the substitutions. Later they used the "c" to represent the "th" sound.

BTW, my grandfather was born in England & I use a "u" in some words, like "your", "our", & "hour".

Please pardon my ignorance AJ, but isn't that redundant? 'Ya'll all' just can't be proper English. Doesn't 'ya'll' means the same thing as yous. In the North we would never say "Yous all know best," it should be "Yous knows best."
