Hello. does any1 know whether Australia have thier own spelling system of whether they abide wholeheartedly by British spelling? I've been told that Australian spelling is predominantly British but has recently given in to US influence too. I recently discovered an Austrailian text however which spells 'flavoursome' as 'flavoursom' which I don't think is English or American is it? Any help would be greatly appreciated Also, what language did Native Americans speak before thye British invasions? Ive been told there were loads and loads, most of them now non existent, but any extra info on that topic wud rly help.
