New Game - I say this you this you say that

    I know that in England we spell some words differently and also we use the same words to mean different things to the American usage. If anyone is interested this might help the Hubbers from places other than America learn words/language they need to adapt to for their hubs.

      Examples.

    (Example 1/ spelling)    I write colour unless I am writing a hub and then I  write the American spelling color.

    (Example 2/ using different words to mean the same thing)

      We wear jumpers I think you call them sweaters.


      So we could set it out like this  jumper = sweater

      Question is is it interesting enough for anyone to want to give it a try?

    Maybe only to me if so this will sink like a stone in a pond.

    Starting with off with

       color = colour
