    Well Americans pronounce the word "route":
    ra-out

    but the "e" at the end of the word makes the pronunciation:

    roo-tuh.

    Silly Americans. Why do you think "re" makes a "er" sound? It's center, not centre. And it's colour, not color.

    I think we know which country has the better edumacation system...
