In case you didn't check the link, "The Canadian Oxford Dictionary prefers aluminum." But that's not the point, the point is we pronounce it aluminum because that's just our accent. We became our own country a while ago and deviated from the rest of the English speaking world and our language started changing along with that, as languages tend to do. I don't know why we took the "i" out but that's how it ended up, doesn't mean we're trying to do anything so you don't need to treat someone like they don't know what they're talking about because they don't spell something with one letter or not.

Your accents allow you to say aluminium perfectly fine, so there was no need to change it on account of them. The isolation didn't do it because every other english speaking country pronounces it Aluminium and some of them had far less contact with the motherland than America did. As you said, you don't know why the letter was taken out, and if this is the case then I will treat you like someone who doesn't know what they are talking about. I didn't intend to make this such a big deal but classic americans blowing things out of proportion.
#205 - adeadaxe (04/27/2013) [-]
I'm not blowing stuff out of proportion, you're the one who insinuated that a country of 315,000,000 people doesn't know how to spell when it's one word with a one-letter difference where both variants are correct according to many dictionaries. Again, the link has some info on the matter; the guy who discovered it originally called it alumium, then he changed it to aluminum when he published his paper. He was British, the only reason it was called aluminium is because "an anonymous contributor to the Quarterly Review, a British political-literary journal, in a review of Davy's book, objected to aluminum and proposed the name aluminium, "for so we shall take the liberty of writing the word, in preference to aluminum, which has a less classical sound." I didn't say we couldn't pronounce aluminium, and the point isn't why the "i" was removed the point is that that's how it ended up and there's just two correct spellings now just like plenty of other words. Also, generalization is bad. Whatever's wrong with me, whether I'm OCD or what, is my own issue, but you said something I thought was incorrect and/or rude enough to warrant a mention. No need to insult an entire country, which is what you did in the first place.
#207 - adeadaxe (04/27/2013) [-]
It wasn't a correction though because aluminum is already correct, that's what I took offense to. Again, it's not about the word itself, it was the implication that we're all retarded because of the way we spell, acting like we did it just to spite the rest of you or didn't learn it properly. Unless, "Because every country except for america seems to have the spelling down pat," has another implication I'm not aware of.
#215 - adeadaxe (04/27/2013) [-]
We only have that system because of the British Empire, we didn't make it ourselves. We just haven't gotten rid of it like everyone else, which is a bit harder to do when the country is so populous and set in its ways. We aren't doing it for shits and giggles, and that doesn't mean it's wrong anyway.

And even the heavier stuff, like black and death metal, is much more than just "noise". I can understand why it may seem that way, but it's really an acquired taste and takes a lot more than one or two listens to understand what makes it good. I myself used to hate extreme metal, but then I really gave it a chance and found myself loving it.
