      Thanks, Jon. The editing system for this site has changed since I created this list, so when I worked on it the layout went pearshaped, and I can’t work out how to fix it, sigh. Have asked my webmaster about this, it looks like it will be a lot of work to overhaul such pages so I am probably going to have to postpone further list edits till I have more time to do them properly. Also I’m not adding many suffixed forms so I’ve added ‘organise/organize’ but not ‘organisation’ etc, and I’m generally not adding place names, there are just too many, and ‘Georgia’ is a long way past ‘or’ in my teaching sequence. All the best Alison

      I’ve checked the Macquarie Dictionary and it says “/ɔˈθɒrəti/ (say aw’thoruhtee)” is the pronunciation for ‘authority’ in General Australian English, so the ‘or’ spelling represents /o/ plus /r/ not /or/. Maybe it’s different in your accent. All the best, Alison
