Why not just write 'Q' rather than Queue
December 10, 2016 2:14am CST
The letter Q sounds just perfect when we write about standing in line. Why write it as 'queue'? OK if 'Q' looks odd then atleast just write it as 'que' But no. It has to be written as 'queue'. Whoever originated this must have had strong reasons. Anyone knows what those reasons were?

@allknowing If you say that you are standing in a queue then nobody would see the spelling. Words are often understood better in context than otherwise, so even if you write "stung by a b" it will be understood. We still need spellings to differentiate words, such as sow a seed or sew a dress.

Queueing..... It suggest a never ending ... Its like a running tap... But while trying to figure it out, why don't you kill two birds with one stone by figuring out why "bee" wasn't just left at "B" but had to be accompanied by a double "e".
