If “colour”and “color”, “favourite”… Have you ever wondered why Americans spell those words without a “u” Is it because they are lazy
Of course not. In fact, the difference in spelling was created by Noah Webster (1758- 1783). He is a teacher who reformed English to make American identity stronger. Linguists celebrated his 250th birthday on October 16, 2008. After the Revolutionary War (1755- 1783), Webster believed that Americans should have their own dictionary, rather than rely on British versions. He dropped the British “u” in some words. And he changed “centre” into “center” for children to learn English by spelling words more like they sounded.
Webster wasn’t shy about expressing his opinions. In defining (定义) preposterous (unreasonable), he wrote: “A Republican government in the hands of females is preposterous.”
