Get rid of the "K"
It seems that Americans like to get rid of surplus letters in words, for example the "u" in colour, favourite etc. So is it time that they got rid of the surplus "K" in some words.
I'm only joking about the dropping of letters.
But it seem that the dropping and mixing of numbers with words to form smaller words to fit text messages is gaining more ground. And it seems that text messaging is getting more prevalent in schools indeed some pupils in the UK are using that spelling in exams.
