I'm sorry, but I throw an exception at this; when you say "weird queen's dialect" do you mean… English? I don't go around referring to the other variation as "weird can't spell dialect" (but maybe I should) 😛
The u in words like honour is what makes it pronounced like "onner" rather than "hone-ore", same with colour being "culler" rather than "coal-ore". Sorry but it really annoys me when people consider the English version of English to be the weird one, as the clue is literally in the name as to which version is correct. This is why it still galls me that the language in macOS is "British English" yet the other one is just "English" rather than "American English" or whatever, it's a hideous double standard.

That aside, I'm a strong +1 for the feature 😉
