They call aluminium 'aluminum'. That's easier to say, I admit = one less syllable. Though it smacks of laziness too like your sulfur example. I suggest we all let them get on with it. We can carry on with our sulphur and aluminium as usual and pretend we agree. I will get a thrill of subversiveness in crossing any new spellings out on the pots at work and rewriting them.

Unfortunately not. School textbooks and exam papers have been changed. American "lazy" spelling is what all have to adopt now. Of course Industry and Academics are not happy.
