Apparently you don't use punctuation in England either. I guess America invented that, too. Seriously, there are dozens of countries that play this game and the developers are from America, so it stands to reason they would spell things the American way.

Hi there
Do you mean the toolbars on the farms? Not sure they adjust for the multitude of 'different' languages and cultures such as 'American' or..ahem..'English'.
Here on the Forum however, please feel free to spell(or misspell) anyway you wish .. as long as it isn't profane, noone will mind or(for the most part) criticize.

Navstart has a good point there - plus I thought a "plough" is the actual machinery used to "plow" a field? Therefore we spend our time plowing (seeing as we have no machinery) - not ploughing! If you really want to get pedantic then you really do need to check your capitals and spacing - re-reading your post would be good before actually posting!

Quote:
In English, as in other Germanic languages, the plough was traditionally known by other names, e.g. Old English sulh, Old High German medela, geiza, or huohili, and Old Norse ar­r, all presumably referring to the scratch plough.

The current word plough also comes from Germanic, but it appears relatively late (it is absent from Gothic), and is thought to be a loanword from one of the north Italic languages. In these it had different meanings: in Raetic plaumorati (Pliny), and in Latin plaustrum "wagon, cart", plōstrum, plōstellum "cart", and plōxenum, plōximum "cart box".[1][2]

The word is first attested in Germanic as Lombardic plōvum, referring to the wheeled heavy plough. From Germanic, the term was borrowed into Balto-Slavic languages giving Old Church Slavonic plugǔ and Lithuanian pl˙gas. Ultimately, the word is thought to derive from an ancestral PIE *blōkˇ, related to Armenian pelem "to dig" and Welsh bwlch "gap, notch".[3][4]
