another spell of hangman

I started hangman a little while ago and it’s since been to Casyn, Onanymous, back to Casyn, Inspiral, MuzeKez and back to me. Now I know there are other people want a go so I’ll make this easy for ya.

The United States flavor *koff* flavour *koff* of English dogs me. In programming and web design, I have learnt to spell color syntactically correct—that is, as required to make things work. Occassionally I spell the word without the u in general writings and consequently get my head bitten off. One should not work with ex-teachers with less than an impeccable grasp of English grammar and punctuation. That’s Australian English in my place of work.

When we installed our CMS, it came with a button labelled favorites. A button I can’t change. Do you know how many people complained the word was spelled—is it spelled or spelt, I think we can use either—wrong?

And then there’s Dragonball Z. That’s zee, not zed. It’s the name of the show. It’s in the theme song! I am calling it what it is called. People don’t complain when I say café that I’m speaking French instead of Australian English, so why do they complain when I say “Dragonball Zee”. Yes, it is zee, and yes, it is american.

And so is this word. That’s your clue. Good luck 🙂

A·M·E·R·I·C·A·N *snickers* Obvious to all now, isn’t it? Congrats to Amanda!

  1. By golly Amanda has done it! Excellent sleuthing there :)Sorry Pickwick, you need to look harder to find answers hidden in plain sight 😉

  2. By the way, this part: is it spelled or spelt – I’ve written “spelt” to my American and Canadian friends heaps of times and they pick me up on it every time. And every time I reply with “Well it’s right here so shuddup.” As you can see, I handle it absolute maturity.
