In response to sulfur or suphur?, written by Phil C on April 20, 1998 at 16:17:27
*Snip* I think that sulfur/sulphur has been changed universally actually - at least, that is what one of my chemistry lecturers said.
Not here in little out-of-the-way New Zealand, it hasn't!! I wonder where your chemistry lecturer heard that. Oh well, I think it's really interesting seeing how languages differ from each other, anyway, especially the ones that are supposed to be the same. Someone said once that Latin is a dead language only because it doesn't change anymore- so I'm glad to see English is still very much alive and kicking:-)
-Andrea, who still spells "sulfur" with a "ph", like the Brits:-)
