Math is hard. Let's do maths!

I was out with Scots tonight to celebrate Robert Burns' birthday, and received a telling off for using 'math' on this blog. I'll try not to let it happen again.

(In general, regular readers might have noticed a slide into increasingly Americanized spelling. There's a very simple reason for this. A few months ago I installed a new edition of Firefox, and it automatically spell-checks every piece of text I enter. Since I'd rather compromise my cultural and linguistic heritage than have my screen covered with squiggly red lines under all of my words, it's less hassle to use American spellings.)

Ps. If anyone's confused by the title of this post, it's based on the snowclone.

If my vote counts for anything (at least I'm staying in Scotland): more formal stuff!
I must say, speaking only American English of the Southern variety, the title of this post threw me for a loop. I'll cast my vote with Ole, more formal and more Dummett.
There's a good reason there's not more formal stuff on this blog...
Regarding Firefox dictionaries, you can install new dictionaries from this link, restart Firefox, and then choose your favorite language in Preferences -> Advanced -> Languages.
