It just ended... and... I can't believe I got...

2nd place. Still, if 1st place is sick, or otherwise detained from attendance of the next level, I'll be the one to go!

I think that's exactly what happened to me in 4th grade. I'll always remember how to spell delinquent, though. Nice job on 2nd though!

Thanks. Well, I can look at my 2 upsides: I don't have to be in a mad storm of studying for the next level, AND I will absolutely NEVER EVER forget how to spell castanets. Or brood, from last year. But, next year will be my year.

You never know, 1st place may have some kind of "unexpected accident"

The whole idea of having spelling as a competitive sport is something I shall never understand; Americans spell a lot of words incorrectly, anyway!

I got 3rd place in my 4th grade spelling bee. I remember I had wrote a couple different spellings of 'business' on my scratch paper, then they called me up, and I scratched them out (but not one spelled 'bisuness', by accident). I spelled it correctly, and the jerk judge/principal made me do the spelling on the paper, so I lost on a technicality.

Regarding AtkinsSJ's statement, do you mean the lack of 'ou' in our spelling of words such as honor/honour? Or did you say it how you meant it?

Regarding Blackmyth's questions, yes, and yes, but I'm not sure that's what you mean. I meant that British spelling is correct, basically.
