I'm Canadian, so I was taught the English spelling in school (so "colour"). But by living in North America (and with the help of the internet and all), I think I'm more used to read "color" everywhere. The American spelling is also much more common in my field of study (computer sciences).

BUT! Even with all this, I prefer to use the English spelling of "colour" and all is friends :P (behaviour, odour, flavour, etc. =P)

I love certain words with the non-American English spelling, like humour, favourite and theatre, but for the most part I think the "u" is useless and I think words should end with "-ize" not "-ise."
Though, I think it's all a part of phonetics as well: Alphabetized sounds (and looks) better with American accents while Alphabetised sounds (and looks) better with European/Canadian accents~ :shrug:

"color" just because I use the American spellings. =P

Not to say that British isn't nifty, though. I kinda like "re" instead of "er" for Theater. =P The "re" at the end of my name (sumre, pronounced "summer") was because my mom wanted to spell my name differently and thought it'd be nice to take out the M and switch the E and the R.

"Colour" can look kinda nifty, but I prefer "Color" myself. :3

Well, I speak spanish, but I pronounce it as "colour", because a teacher taught me it was a french word, so, it must be pronounced as it was originally meant, also, she told me not to be lazy lol

Canadians spell it: colour vs. americans spelling it color. We have other quote on quote " proper spelling" they teach us in school like: neighbour/neighbor. Not sure why though.

Just saying historical origins dominate a lot. Realized many of the cities are named after british things Ex: we have a town called London, a town was called York until they renamed it Toronto, there's Churchhill ect.

People who speak spanish use the word "color" too, I think "color" in english language appeared because of a mistake someone made, like so many words in USA english.
