If I was writing a cover letter for my resume to The United Caramel Corporation of America I would spell it Caramel.

If I was writing a White Paper about the international implications of US Caramel policy I would spell it Caramel.

If I'm shooting the breeze with my pals on SI I'll spell it carmel.

Don't be an elitist.

There's nothing elitist about accuracy in spelling at a vocabulary thread.

Differences between British English and American English spelling.

spellzone.com

Canada leans US in spelling and Australia & New Zealand lean more British in spelling, but they all have unique aspects.

I think we're getting into regional pronunciations. When I get my sea salt and caramel chocolate, I say the second a.

Yes, and mentioned earlier, UK, Australian, & New Zealand spelling are mostly British.

Also, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland have separate Celtic languages, but predominately use English and British spelling, although pronunciation is substantially different.

My goal is not to be arrogant, but to pursue accepted spelling whether Americanized or British.

Best to All -- Josh :)

My favorite art book and highly recommend it.

This is a big book and beautiful. I've lost count how many I've given as gifts.

No one will regret buying this. -- Josh
