This article concerns the growing use of non-Australian (English) spelling amongst the newest generations. As members of the new generation we must realise what our problems are and tackle them. Yes, this is directed at the use of American spellings such as "realize" and "color" in place of "realise" and "colour". This page in no way infers that Americans are responsible, it it merely our (Australians') adoption of a growing, international phonetically simpler and computerised vocabulary that does not reflect our heritage.
