that's how it's spelt in other parts of the world.
To each his own.
Way to be intolerant. :)
If you're going to fuss about it why not drop the e at the end of favourite?
Color and Colour are different ways to spell it in different places, not just because one looks cooler than the other.
Color looks incomplete though. :|
"but it just takes more time typing/writing that extra letter"
So are you the kind of person who uses "2" instead of "to/too" and "u" instead of "you," too?
Not at all.
shut up dude.
stop being so ignorant - people spell things differently.
I'm American but I much prefer adding the 'u' to words :)
U and O have only the I between them. So what? You get bored writing all your words? So 'green' should just be 'gree' because the N is far away from the E?
ColoUr is the way it's spelt in Canada & I believe the UK. American's spell it without a u. It's the same with favourite/favorite & neighbour/neighbor.
Just depends on where you're from.
I have to admit that I think "color" looks absurd, as does "favorite". You need the "u". It just makes sense.
Writing them without the "u" is like pronouncing "stupid" "stoopid". It needs to be said "stew-pid". Otherwise it doesn't make sense.
Bloody lazy Americans.
However, we say stoopid in America, not stew-pid.
It's definitely pronounced "stoo-pid" and not "stew-pid". You can even go on Google translator and have press "listen" and the lady will say "stoo-pid". Bloody stewpid British people..
I actually prefer the u in colour, simply because it's easier to type. You get more chance to get the left hand to the r from the c.
Color colour color colour color colour. Yep colour wins
hmmm why not ask that to the queen, huh?
I think that the u looks right in colour, but not favorite or any other words.
Looks like a slight American majority
Or self-hating Brits voted.
Colour looks like it should be pronounced "coal-hour."
