British spelling should be just as acceptable, if not more so, than American spelling, e.g. jeweller.

"sanitation worker" / bin man
your mom /your mum

also dollar, cent, quarter etc should be taken out, as with the states.

Allowing both spellings would be good for words like racket/racquet, color/colour... not for sanitation worker/bin man, dollar/pound. You can't take out all the words that are used in one culture vs another. Should torch and flashlight be the same? Elevator and lift? Eh.

I have found that many misspellings are accepted by the system anyway. Would that cover an extra 'u' here and there?

I don't think the American words should be taken out... like dollar, quarter, etc... I mean Americans play too.

Brits have as much of a hard time figuring out how to spell the American word as Americans get flustered about the British words.

We usually figure it out anyways. :P

Hi, all spellings can be suggested and will most likely be accepted as words that will show up in the choices. Also, in a word such as colour, spelling it the American way will work, as will the opposite. (colour for color) One letter off generally works. Trash bin is an entirely different word set than garbage can. Both are in the word set. Have fun!
