    You didn't Put anything in your post besides a definition. My guess is you don't like kilometer. It's a real word.

    Definition of KILOMETER

    Thank you,

    Would love to see this corrected so the navigation system uses kilometres.

    As linguists celebrate English Language Day and Shakespeare’s birthday, what does the ever-changing way we speak reveal about us?

    Americans spell things differently than the rest of the world.

    In the world outside of the US we have theatre, centre, kilometre. Honour, colour, defence.

    Then there's the almost purely Canadian words toque, mukluk, and in Saskatchewan bunnyhug.

    Get wise Americans, and learn that Robertson Screws are the best in the world.

    Would you please do me a favour and write me a coloured cheque for that toque in the centre of the chesterfield.
