One of the things to do on this page is to create a table for the spelling differences. It looks ugly this way, but I don't have time nor experience to make a table for it. I'll do it later, most likely, but if someone else feels the need, go right ahead! --Cromwellt 20:13, 19 February 2006 (UTC)Reply

Another thing is to use IPA for the pronunciation section. --Cromwellt 20:14, 19 February 2006 (UTC)Reply

American bias

The article seems to be biased towards American English. This sentence for example: "Americans usually pronounce these words as "mo-bil" and "mis-il" but British people usually say "mo-BILE" and "mis-ILE" where "ILE" is pronounced the same as "isle".". It describes how British people would say the words, but not how Americans would. That implies that the article was written to teach an American about British English. --GW_SimulationsUser Page | Talk 10:01, 11 April 2008 (UTC)Reply
