Aug 29, 2013
How does changing the clue to "mosque leader" help? Shi'a Muslims go to mosques, don't they? I think ayatollah should be accepted.

I think you're confused. The leader of a Shia mosque is usually called a mullah. Ayatollahs are high-ranking officials or scholars.

Erm no one takes the I out of medicine in Britain or U.K. Where did you get your information from?
+2
level 71
Mar 24, 2017
It's just a pronunciation issue, much like how Americans don't pronounce the H in Herb or the C in Arctic And the spelling of Aluminium with a second "i" is internationally agreed convention

It's less common owing to the BBC making a decision to go over to the American meaning of "billion". However, many Brits still use Billion in it's original sense of a million squared. So jetpunk should accept billion as a correct answer to the question just as they should accept the British spelling of distil - or open themselves to the charge of being US-centric again.
