Charles recognizes the differences in language, but I think he has a misunderstanding of "ownership" and how it is applied. Or in the case of language, not applied.

Aluminium was just and example, I’ve travelled a lot of the US and I though that the UK had a problem with dialect. Actually it seems to be not so much dialect but the pronunciation that differs across the US

Charlie just has myriad misunderstandings,“ownership” of a language is just one of them. Our first argument was when he blamed bad parenting for cot death. At that time my friends had recently lost a child in that way and he accused them of murder. Even thought he eventually apologised though me to my friends the anguish his ignorance caused is something he can never be forgiven for.

Now you can't really blame the U.S. on the spelling and pronunciation of Aluminum. Which is just fine. By the way how do Brits spell and pronounce "Platinum"? If anything the problem with Aluminum can be blamed on Sir Humphrey Davy. He named the element. His name was based upon the mineral alumina, Al2O3, and he naturally called it "Alumium". He scratched his head over that a few years and changed it to "Aluminum". Still not pleased he eventually changed it to "Aluminium". In the U.S. the second version caught on. In England the third:

He was comparing dialects between the native European Portuguese and Brazilian Portugese, where in Mr. Hillbilly's opinion, Brazil has a much clearer pronounciation than their Portuguese relatives, and have a better phonetic sound, compared to the Portuguese who "speak like they're drunk". He then added a comment that the Portuguese don't use 'Voce'(you - in fact they use the latin derivative Tu.'Voce' is a slang that comes from Voss). Bottom line, is that the difference between these dialects is very similar to the differences between British and North American English.

Chuckie can't admit to even the slightest "oops" - not even in something as simple as choice of words.

Now he's locked on to his favourite obsession.

And he's still wrong.

How do you pronounce it? When ever I see "Pyjamas" my brain reads it "Pie-jamas". Hmm, time to check the original pronunciation.

Oh my, one of the earliest pronunciations very well may have been "pie-jamas":

http://www.etymonline.com/index.php...

"1800, pai jamahs "loose trousers tied at the waist," worn by Muslims in India and adopted by Europeans there, especially for nightwear, from Hindi pajama, probably from Persian paejamah, literally "leg clothing," from pae "leg" (from PIE *ped- "foot," see foot (n.))+ jamah "clothing." Modern spelling (U.S.) is from 1845. British spelling tends toward pyjamas."

Then prove it, instead of waving your hand with simplistic responses because I will post it until you do.

You are likely another one that cannot separate data from the hypothesis made of it.

Subby you're still waving your hands in the breeze, I see, deluding yourself that smart butt cracks have some scientific merit.

Hehehe.

It's pronouced the same way, only with an English (or Irish) accent.

The data aligns with a documented creationist accoung better than an evolutionary paradigm.

Not only does mankind have differenct molecular machinery to apes, since the dawn of genetics evolutionists have had to waste their time overturning and hypothesising as to why evidence for creation and special earth is wrong.

Simulations show that for most study designs and settings, it is more likely for a research claim to be false than true. Moreover, for many current scientific fields, claimed research findings may often be simply accurate measures of the prevailing bias. In this essay, I discuss the implications of these problems for the conduct and interpretation of research.

http://www.plosmedicine.org/article/info:doi/ ...

Some genetic phenomena originate as mutations that are initially advantageous but decline in fitness until they become distinctly deleterious. Here I give the condition for a mutation–selection balance to form and describe some of the properties of the resulting equilibrium population. A characterization is also given of the fixation probabilities for such mutations.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3 ...

As a result, the human race is genetically mutating, according to Japanese geneticist Yusaku Nakabeppu of Kyushu University and his team, who released their findings Monday in the trade journal Genome Research.

http://www.naturalnews.com/021220_genetic_mod ...

These data support models in which negative epistasis contributes to declining rates of adaptation over time.

http://www.sciencemag.org/content/332/6034/11 ...

In other words, random detrimental mutations build up in the gene pools of living things with a low reproductive rate far far faster than natural selection can get rid of them. This generally accepted fact of modern science strongly implies, therefore, that we have devolved, not evolved, from an originally superior state, as a species or collective gene pool, compared to our current rapidly degenerating condition

http://www.educatetruth.com/featured/dr-john -...

Life is devolving as per a documented account. Sanford is a well credentialed and published researcher. Evolutionary scientists can only offer complicated hypothesis as to why all data supports a creationist pardigm and gives evolutionists headaches.
