British or American?

C.K.Ogden, who was the producer of Basic English, was from Great Britain. That would be one of why some of words in Basic English was lettered in British way.
Today the words are right to be taken place by American way.The reason is not because American but because the letterings have harmony with sounds. The words Ryota-san put like "behaviour," "colour," "grey," "harbour," "humour" and "plough" are, in their lettering, not are not simple and are against sounds a bit.
