Let's get it over with ...

I mean, the way you say it, "PEICES" should be how it's spelt.

I'm surprized the Americans haven't seen to it, afterall they're usually good at cleaning up English pronounciation:

  • "colour" becomes "color" (who needs the "u"?);
  • "penalised" sounds like it should have a "z" in it, towards the end, so becomes "penalized";
  • "centre" has it's "r" and "e" a bit mixed up, so becomes "center".

That said, "Aluminium" still needs a bit of working on (the "i" before the "um" is a bit of giveaway, there).

But, then, if we're going to continue along the phonetic path, surely - Aluminium - it'd sound more correct for there to be an "e" instead of the "i"?

Anyway ... Pieces ... how's that worked out? P-I-E-ces ... not P-E-I-ces? Say them out loud - "Chess Pieces" vs "Chess Peices" - and the second case sounds like it should be the more accurate spelling.

Alas, it isn't ... "Pieces" it is.

Right, enough nonsense. That should keep Google happy. Now, let's get back to something proper, to do with playing Chess.
