I've seen several Tumblr posts on here who've met every one of those conditions you just stated. Apparently you're just blind, I dunno what else to tell you. Get off the computer and go bounce around off walls like a fish or something.

I read somewhere that extra letters like "u" were actually added by the British to make their language, like, fancier or some **** .

Someone fact-check that for me.
#27 to #26 - mayoroftownsville ONLINE (07/31/2014) [-]
The British have a long history of changing spelling to make it seem more Latin-derived than it really is. The biggest example is the changing of 'det' to 'debt' to make it seem as though it were from the Latin 'debitum.'

That's a given; different areas different ways to say something. However how is it suppose to be pronounced? Flavor is pronounced the same way you pronounce or at the end. So in my mind it looks like the English says it with much more flare at the end as if you were to do a bad french accent.
User avatar #4 to #3 - ennaburning (07/30/2014) [-]
Nah, I think the basic idea is pretty much the same - a lot of english accents lengthen the syllables at the end of words - especially ones with a vowel then r - so car would sound more like caah - with like, the a being like, a deep sound? this is really hard to explain haha

Colour is pronounced cull-er here in the UK, and humour is pronounced hume-er.

Basically the 'our' part is pronounced like any ordinary 'er'.

England, look, we know you invented the language and all, and that's really cool.

But when you look at how a word like Colonel compared to how it's pronounced... You invented it wrong.

User avatar #145 to #143 - adrianking (07/31/2014) [-]
Then why is it in the English language, German guy?
User avatar #171 to #170 - adrianking (07/31/2014) [-]
Yes. I understand that there are aspects of other languages in English. But you ignored my question. Not how, but why. The language has crushed itself under the weight of its own exceptions simply to make room for words that use completely different grammatical rules than English does. It's a broken language, there's no need to defend that, it's obvious to everyone.
User avatar #174 to #171 - thatoneiranianguy ONLINE (07/31/2014) [-]
So simple because it borrows terminology and language from other cultures simply means it's a broken language?

Then again perhaps we have two different views of something that is broken. I find the complexity of the English language to be absolutely beautiful in that manner. We have a diverse range of wordage to describe a single thing; whether it be a person or place - with a far extensive grammar system.

But that link kind of explains why it "crushes itself under the weight of its own exceptions simply to make room for words that use completely different grammatical rules than English does." Many people have invaded and conquered the land over times. Whether it be Saxons, Romans, other German tribes, Scandis or the Normans lead by Duke William the Bastard. Over time cultures clash and combine from each other.

There's a reason you see a lot of French words in English, and that tends to extend from the Norman conquest of England. It's really not that hard to understand.
User avatar #146 to #145 - seras (07/31/2014) [-]
Why do you use words like "television" (greek), "radio" (french) and "german" (latin)? Because languages develop from other languages and borrow words from them.
User avatar #147 to #146 - adrianking (07/31/2014) [-]
The difference being those words follow the rules of the language.

And the language is still ridiculous, when you have so many exceptions to so many words that you practically have to see a word to know how it's spelled. There's no reason for that kind of complexity.
User avatar #163 to #147 - Marker ONLINE (07/31/2014) [-]
English takes words from other languages all the time, and those words commonly follow the rules of that language, albeit adapted a bit. In the case of "colonel", this page has a good explanation: teachinghistory.org/history-content/ask-a-historian/22270

This oddity is true for alot of words, and as such, English, being the mutt of other languages, has so many irregularities that they become more common than the conventions/"rules" of the language.

quick history lesson

the original auld english was a gaelic language like welsh irish and scottish....the romans came over and ****** it....then germans came over and ****** it more....then french came in and money shot all over it to finish....and the resulting bastard result got dubbed modern english

part of the reason why theres several dialects of english is because pockets of different mixes of the language ancestors influenced how modern english was pronounced

I always ******* hate it when Americans spell those words with a "u" in it. It's not even so much the spelling of it, but the people that do that tend to be pretentious ***** and want to seem well-cultured. Art students in particular tend to do that and then they always bitch about getting marked off on papers because they spell it incorrectly. It's a regional variation; all languages have them and it makes sense to adhere to the way your country uses its particular language.
User avatar #161 to #30 - HonkIfIDriveWell (07/31/2014) [-]
You should never be marked wrong for that, though. American teachers should know that their country spells a lot of words badly. They are teachers after all.
User avatar #57 to #30 - OsamaBinLadenz (07/31/2014) [-]
Now, I spell words the way Americans spell them, and I do see where you're coming from, but what you're describing isn't 100% accurate.

Literally every country that has English courses teach them the way the U.K. spells their words and use names the U.K. uses for names that might be different in the U.S.

Perhaps, like the people who want us to make a change to the metric system from the imperial system, they just want to do what the rest of the world is doing so it's less complicated.

To be fair, though, we can suck " **** off" to the Brits who want us to stop saying "soccer", because their upper-class citizens invented the word before their middle-class and lower-class citizens dubbed it "football".
User avatar #58 to #57 - OsamaBinLadenz (07/31/2014) [-]
Edit: And even then, it may not be because they want to do it the way the rest of the world wants to do it. They may want to do it the traditional way.

Although I do think it's entirely possible that there are cunts who just want to brag about how cultured they are.
User avatar #169 to #57 - aerius (07/31/2014) [-]
I think it just might be because it's a game in which you kick a ball using your feet. As opposed to American football, AKA handegg.
User avatar #200 to #169 - OsamaBinLadenz (07/31/2014) [-]
Well, if I'm correct, didn't the British use of "soccer" stem from "assocation football"? They both pretty much mean the same thing, in that respect.
User avatar #33 to #30 - turkeyslapper (07/31/2014) [-]
No dude it's just america, most ppl who speaks English use the uk spelling for all words. Some places may have different slang and call things by different names but they spell the common words the same as the uk.
