Well, nothing is *just* an orthography. en-US is mostly an orthography,
but (as I've said before) yoou don't really understand the variety until
you know exactly what "Johnny went to the bathroom in his pants" means.

In might the Feanorians / that swore the unforgotten oath
brought war into Arvernien / with burning and with broken troth.
and Elwing from her fastness dim / then cast her in the waters wide,
but like a mew was swiftly borne, / uplifted o'er the roaring tide.
