it's actually a rather acceptable variant; i'm terribly sorry if i've
confused someone's tiny little brain with alternate spellings.  may i
suggest sounding the word out phonetically to figure out what i mean?

actually, i do have a rather bad habit of preferring british spellings and
grammar conventions over their american counterparts.  sadly, as an
american, i'm indoctrinated in my culture's lack of concern for such
shortcomings, and generally ignore the complaints of other americans who
think they're right when they're not.  ;)

you have no idea how crazy this drives my writing professors.
