Is the Canadian spelling of honourary, honourary? I would guess that it is, but do not have my dictionary with me.

http://www.luther.ca/~dave7cnv/cdnspelling/cdnspeH.html

that link says that all other variants of the word are spelt with ou, so I will revert the spelling changes unless someone says otherwise.

I think when you add suffixes to words like that, the U drops out, so it's honorary, humorous, etc. Personally, I still use honourary and humourous, and I don't think there is a correct spelling (despite what the link says). Adam Bishop 22:48, 20 Dec 2003 (UTC)
No, there's no rule about suffixes. It has to do with the history of the word in British spelling, which I believe depends on whether the word comes from French or directly from Latin. --Saforrest 22:34, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Its honour. See Canadian English. The Wik should at least be consistent within itself. Edmilne 22:59, Dec 20, 2003 (UTC)

Honourary, as opposed to honour and honourable, is not used. There is a correct spelling. There is no good reason, that I know, for this, but those are the breaks. The Oxford English Dictionary agrees. –Joke137 6 July 2005 03:20 (UTC)
