Whether someone chooses to call it "fluff", or by any other word at all, absolutely nothing changes the fact that the correct English spelling has been modified by Americans and is therefore no longer the correct English spelling.FFC wrote:Thank you.The more interesting fact about those words is that none are affected in pronunciation omitting the 'u' within the word or the 'e' at the end of the word. I suppose our "Americanized" English simply did away with that which is just fluff.
I just thought that point needed to be clearly stated as there seems to be a presumably innocent attempt here to fog the issue.
Oh, and to follow that original line of reasoning, I suppose the next thing I will hear is that txt language, being an even more stringent removal of this so-called "fluff", is also the correct English spelling... hahaha!
