That is actually kind of the point, Noah Webster purposely spelled many words more to how they sound like fetus, instead of foetus, color instead of colour etc. He said he wanted "to rescue "our native tongue" from "the clamour of pedantry" that surrounded English grammar and pronunciation." He set about to actually create a more distinct language from the traditional English to give Americans a sense of unity through a unique language, adding words like skunk and squash. So yeah, this is true in a lot of ways, and is not necessarily just poking fun at Americans.

come over here to England and have to listen to it all the ******* time...then tell me its fun. It may be fun to type out but when you hear it all the damn time, it is ear sandpaper. it grates on your ******* nerves, so when you hear it so often that whenever someone types it or texts I can hear it in my head.......it sends shivers down my spine. if you are already in England then I have 1 thing to say....why are you subjecting others to this torture?

Back in the day all those K words were pronounced with their K's, as weird as that sounds to us now.

Knife comes from the old Norse word knif, and they pronounced it with the K as you say. The vikings introduced a lot of words to the English language.

Well, American English is actually simplified... ex: England spells colour, America spells Color.

We use less pointless vowels.

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing of a pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?
