It is called English ultimately - that fine and adaptable anglo/cletic/french/german hybrid  - I guess if you go with the reductive argument some US English make sense but those extra 'U's in Flavour' etc are delightfully "Je ne sais pas quoi" n'est-ce pas?

oh yeah, you're just used to call it american. like, in danish, you say that it is american as well, 'cause you wouldn't say that it is USAian. that is how we are used to speak about language, and therefore it's the easiest thing just to say american. am i understanding you, or did i miss your point? i'm a bit diffuse today.

You don´t want to put your tongue on it in frosty conditons. :P (Everybody licks their guitars once in a while right?)

Aluminium is spelled aluminium, according to International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, the scientific body that decides what elements are called. They'll "allow" the US spelling, but the correct one is  the way everybody except the USA spells it.

Laser, by the way, does not have a Z in it anywhere in the world. It's an acronym, Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. LASER.

And that letter? The last one the alphabet? It's pronounced Zed, not Zee.
