the International-English language guide (v0.4a)

International-English Grammary rules :

Rule #1 : "-ize" versus "-ise"
In International-English language, we don't speak American-English or British-English. So, we are free to choose whichever ending we want.
However, it is recommended to adapt ourselves to our interlocutors.

For instance, if you write to an American-English speaker, you'd rather prefer the -ise ending, and when you'll write to a British-English speaker, you'd rather prefer the -ize one.
It's also possible to select -isze or -izse endings, and you're absolutely welcome to change all along your sentences.
However, it is absolutely forbidden to improvizse excentrical endings such as -izzzz, iszsze, etc.

Examples :
  • I realize that we could recognise that he did not organizse this exercisze as expected. (correct)
  • Yeah, I agree. It was a great surprizzszsze ! <------- bad ! very bad ! Don't !

Same rule apply to words like civilizsation, coloniszation, etc.

Rule #2 : "-our" versus "-or"
The rule is almost the same than #1.
The alternative International-English ending is : "-oor".
On the other hand, the "-ur" ending is not an acceptable alternative !
Examples :
  • I love the couloor of yor eyes and the flavoor of yoor tongue ! (correct)
  • Yeah, yur right ! <----- bad ! extremely bad !

Rule #3 : "-re" versus "-er"
Again, same as #1 and #2.
Unfortunately, there is no International-English alternative ending.
However, keep in mind that this rule only apply to words that have a different spelling in American-English than in British-English.
When available, always prefer international spellings over american-english spellings : litre and metre instead of liter and meter
Examples :
  • As I was lost in the centre of this commercial center, I drunk three litre ... (correct)
  • Three liter of what ? Of wine or of watre ? <---- bad ! very very bad ! never do that !
  • I don't remember, so I guess it was not water. (correct)

Rule #4 : conjugation :
If you forget the -s or the -es at the third person, it do not really matter as long as the pronoun is present in your sentence.
By default, every past form of verbs take a final -d or -ed, and it is acceptable to ignore irregular verbs.
It is also acceptable to conjugate the verb after its auxiliary : I did not conjugated correctly.

Examples :
  • She don't understand because she's a girl ... (acceptable)
  • Yeah, that's because girls have a smaller brain than men. (correct)(and true)
  • Yes, you're right. I have readed that in a magazsine writed by eminent scientists. (acceptable)

Rule #5 : plural forms :
By default, plural form of words take a final -s, and it is acceptable to write the plural form of words like child and "man" with a final -s (childs, mans), instead of children and men.
Also, if you accidentally add a final -s to children, it does not really matter ... as for men with a final -s, it's rather a women's problem that you should better avoid.

Examples :
  • I hate childs ... (acceptable)
  • Why did you made childrens then ? (acceptable)
  • Because I wanted to play Lego and Play-doh again ... (immature and stupid)

International-English pronounciation :

As we all know :
- most American-English speakers emit ducks and cats noises through their nose, and almost "vomit" some vowels
- most British-English speakers emits vowels through their nose from the back of their throat, and consonants between their teeth without using their lips
- most Australian-English speakers don't pronounce at all (they just make noises)

So, you are free to pronounce your words with whatever accent you want. It's your right. After all, English is not your first language. You can be proud to know more than one language, and thus, it's your entire right to customise this second language with your natural accent.

However, if, for the sake of compatibility, you absolutely want to imitate an accent, it is highly suggested to pick the Canadian-English pronunciation. They are the only ones to pronounce words like "about" and "house" correctly.

For instance, they don't say : "abawt" and "hawse", they say "aboot" and "hooze".

Living abroad for years,I've spent about half my life using international English and some habits die hard. It was funny, even in Uni, I had instructors correct my (perfectly good) spelling. Centre, colour, flavour, aluminium: they all got me criticized at one time or another. The only time it gives me problems now, is when (as a minister) I preach at small backwoods churches and use non-american style terms and phrases. They look at me like...Huh?
