Default O or OU???

What is with all the people on the boards using "ou" in words.
Colour
Favourite

Those words don't have u's where I come from...Is that normal in other areas??
They are Color and Favorite

Also stuff like: Theatre ... Here, that's: Theater

I was just wondering, because ever since I joined PW I have seen these over and over....I just wanna know why!

Cause they are either European or Austrailian. They spell alot of words different. So do Canadians.

No, I don't think so, they just, spell it differently.

Uh huh. Last night, I think it was me who added you to MSN in our conversation. And you just left, are you mad at me, Iglooman, Bad_Magick or WhiteWolf. I just want to know if maybe something happened where you couldn't talk.

Sodagirl.. color is usually spelled colour in canada and same with favourite.

And Theater can be spelled either way. Theatre or Theater. That's in US and Canada.

Yeah that's why there's English and English (US/American) both countries sometimes spell words diffrently or in some cases use words for a diffrent meaning.

We also spell Center "Centre" and Mom "Mum" in Europe.

That whole "theater"-"theatre" thing really irks me. The end of the word sounds like "er" not "re".

I don't know about the other words, but usually theater is like a movie theater, and theatre is like the place you go see a play or opera stuff!
