Queen’s English (enGB)
Version: 1.01
by: tsadok [More]
Does the sight of your neighbor leveling put color in your cheeks? Do you think Americans are meager with their letters?

Queen’s English gives your WoW experience a British flavour, allowing you to appease with fervour that niggling spelling pedant within you. As he or she is wont to do, an American may type "leveling", but to you it will appear as "levelling". Unfortunately it seems too tricky to "fix" chat bubbles, but chat frames and combat frames both work ("Judgement" of Wisdom, anyone?).

To add your own spellings, use the following command:

/qe color colour

...which will replace all occurances of "color" with "colour"

If you don’t like a substitution, use "keep":

/qe keep judgment

...and "judgment" will no longer be replaced with "judgement"

The word list is in the file QEVocab.lua. Suggestions for more spellings are welcome. Queen’s English can also be used (within the scope of single words) to expand abbreviations, eg. "lvl" to "level". Enjoy!

Thank you for the comments. I've just put the comments into my email feed, so I'll get them now.

Omg, I was working on an addon just like this, it converts n00b talk to proper english, I was looking for inspiration in PirateTalk (if anyone's used that). But this addon does exactly what I wanted to do. Awesome, ty for saving me the troubles <3
Excellent addon I must say.

I would like to make some wishes for what I would like to see in future versions of this addon. If they will be implemented or not I'll up to you to decide.

1. To be able to able to turn short versions of sentences into extended version of the sentence.
brb into "be right back" and so on.

2. To be able to turn letter and number combination( God I hate those) into the appropriate word.
m8 turns into mate and so on.

3. To be able to add combinations of symbols that should be ignored all together to allow for the removal of smilies.

Once again thank you for this addon.
Thank you. At the moment it's restricted to single words because of a technical limitation to do with not taking up gigantic amounts of CPU. I'm thinking of an expansion with different modules- enGB, deLOL-ing and maybe other stuff, and think I have a way around the single word limitation.

For the moment, I'll do a quick patch to allow numbers for things like m8 -> mate. Ironically I've just discovered the Lolcat Bible and have translated a chapter or two. Oops!
