  • Colour is the British/European spelling, while Color is the American spelling. Some Europeans use 'Color' as some of their learning resources are from the Americas.

    I argue that the 'Colour' spelling is correct.
    I see Americans argue that 'There's no U in Colour!', but I think that might just be an accent thing.
    Colour and Honour aren't pronounced the same way as 'Motor'. There is a distinct U-sound in there but it's really hard to describe it in text. It's faint, but it's there.

  • Color and I'm from Palestine, even though they teach us "British English" in our schools but because I learned English by myself, I'm more familiar with the American version of spelling these words.

  • I'm not English but I spell it with a 'U'. I'm from an island in the Caribbean that was once under British rule (like many others). We don't really use American spelling. We replace 'S' with 'Z' and stuff like that.

  • I'm from America and there's no U in the word.

    The word Colour has more to do with art and it stands for tone it's like basic colors to create another one and that's where that comes from.
