british-english (the true variant of the english language)

hahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahha.


the only "our" i use is in "endeavour," because roughly nobody in America other than me and George F. Will ever says it.

what about "devour"?

You need it when you're into cannibalism and stuff.

Anyway, I mostly use British but for some words I go American. For example I always say color instead of colour and for words ending in \"-ation\" I usually say \"-zation\" rather than \"-sation\".

wow, I didn\'t know that there was a difference in pronunciation there... (for these words; I know that in general there is a difference but for \"-zation\" and \"-sation\" or \"color\" and \"colour\" I did not think it was such a big difference))
But please, how could I if I never hear any Britons and Americans speak??
(or may it be a question of accent??)

Or did you just want to say that you write it this way??

Yeah, I meant \"write\" not say. I write them differen, but in my head they are said exactly the same. Sorry for confusing you there.

You dont say de-vor, you say de-vow-er, so in this case the U should stay in (at least in my method of writing)

I never use endeavour, but if I did I\'d probably drop the U, and maybe even the A.

Really, it's quite simple. Just adopt Chav speak (and writing)

endeavour becomes endevvah
devour becomes dev-hourrrrrrrah
colour becomes colahhhhhhhhhh etc

Aight! dat sounds gud!

Notice how "sounds" stays the same since Chav's have bling bling cars and read magazines on phat speakers so they at least know some words.

I wouldn't give them THAT much credit. A chav in class once asked me how to spell "amazing".
