Because it sounds awkward as fuck. Language is a tool used to make sense of what other people are saying. If what your saying sounds off, or awkward, it defeats the purpose.

Because "maths" is technically incorrect. The argument for it is that it is plural but you don't use "maths" in plural format (nor is "mathematics" plural). As was already said, an 's' is not necessarily indication of plurality. In fact, making such a mistake is something that would be expected from elementary kids who are still wrapping their heads around singular/plural sentence agreement -- not grown up individuals that know the language. As was posted in a video earlier, they put it in another manner which I quite like. When you abbreviate words, you don't normally take the last letter of the initial word and tag it to the end of the abbreviated one. So why is it that mathematics is different?

That said, I don't really care if you use "math" or "maths" since it's really just cultural slang really, but if you're hellbent on arguing about "maths" being the correct way, that's when you start being annoying. Don't be that guy.

Sorry 'bout that. Guess I'm overly butthurt and combative about it because this is the first time I've actually bitched about it despite it being something that bugs me the most. You're right, I overreacted and I apologize.

Not going to delete the comment though, because it is all true except for the childish insult I said as the opening statement for no reason, and others may benefit from reading it and understanding a bit more about the origins of our dialects.

Degenerated linguistically, you mean.

Notice that British accents sound astoundingly similar to "Southern American" accents. There's a reason for that: The coastline and trade.

American English is closer to "proper" English, if you'd define that as being "unspoiled" when spoken without an accent. This means you pronounce Rs that are supposed to be there and do not pronounce Rs that are not. You do not "Wersh a cah." You "Wash a car." You do not visit a "lib'ry," you visit a "library." Words like "favor" which the British have so self-righteously attributed to having Americans "drop the U" is centuries older than its counterpart "favour." You added a superfluous "U."

British English "evolved" the same way a car "evolves" new sounds, because of a combination of isolated populations and others with massive contact with those outside of the population due to trade and friction between accents from these isolated populations. This is partly why port cities in America also drop or add "Rs," because in order to stop DROPPING them they ADDED them or vice versa. Overcorrection.

Both languages are valid languages. One is not superior to the other, inherently, but the snobby-as-FUCK Brit attitude of "Murricuns ruoonun uh byo-uh-full Unglush" simply is untrue and is a pet peeve of mine. American English is far closer to the English spoken at the time of the founding of America than British English, as of right now. Point blank.
