Why do so many people use the word "route" to mean rout? It's just a small thing that drives me mad.

Route instead of rout is just a common mispelling. I'd say get over it or ignore, not much you can do.

You can't get touchy about little grammar things online. People misuse there and their all the time as well.

In England, we tend to pronounce route as "root", whereas I get the impression in the USA it is "rout".

If I'm not mistaken, Route came from the French first. Then we took their word for rout. But then again, I might be wrong.

rout = rowt

I barely notice small things like this. I've probably mixed the words up a few times myself, in fact I know I have. Everyone does it. Now if tehy satrt slelpnig eervy wrod wnorg lkie tihs, tehn I wulod nticoe. But otherwise, there's no need to make a thread about this.

I meant more that "root" is somewhat popular Aussie vulgar slang.

Romanes eunt domus... or rather Romani ite domum!

As someone from a non-English-speaking country, I do not really care about the spelling issue. I always thought the correct word to be "rout" and it never occurred to me to use something other.

Yeah, there’s a lot of common misspellings here: take calvary, for instance. At first it‘s annoying, but you get used to it, after a while. Just take it like a real stoic would, man! It's better than having one guy do a typo and ten people correcting him (most of them with their own typos, of course).

Monty rules, and nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!!!
