@berowdy That Canadian is wrong. This Canadian, and any of whom I've taken notice, all spell this way.

A joke I suppose? The quiz is only 45 seconds long. Which is too short in my opinion. (Or perhaps the time accidentally got shortened with an update of the quiz?)

The quiz itself is easy I typed very fast without hesitation, and I still didnt get to the last 3 (on tablet though, on keyboard I would atleast be 5 seconds faster so might ve reached the last one).

it needs about 30 seconds more, so you have time to type them all, and the people that do need to think about it, atleast have a few seconds for it.

As far as I know, there's nothing especially Canadian about the word "brunette": it's the word used for female brunets, throughout the English-speaking world.

I can't say I have ever seen "tumour" spelled with a "u" in it. It was a fairly obvious guess to try, but...

The words you were supposed to go by to translate to 'Canadian' looked like spelt by someone who does not know how to spell. Looks so wrong. It looks wrong the US- way of spelling.

Easy stuff. I spell things like this everyday, and have gotten so accustomed that U.S. spelling looks odd and weird.

Wait, "dialogue" doesn't have the "ue" in American spelling? And "matte" is missing the "e" for some reason? What?
