Most of those are spelled correctly. ;)

And half of those are uncommon spellings in the states. Single vs Double "L" words are invariably spelled both ways; i.e. cancelled vs canceled. I tend to utilize two Ls, it does look better.

I have never seen amoeba spelled ameba. That's just wrong, period. Axe vs Ax tends to be dialect/intelligence. Most utilize Axe from what I've seen.

We drop unnecessary u's in words. Color is correct, dammit. So is behavior. What is the u's supposed to be doing there? Simplify, dammit. English, not French. :p

A good portion of those words are "re" vs "er" suffixes. Again, English motherfuckers, do ya speak it? Harder "er" endings are better English, you can have your Frenchified English if y'all want, but we're not having it over here.

Comically, it appears we American adopted willful, with double L, while you British-subjects adopted wilful.
I think we did this to spite you. :D
