Why am I seeing the spelling of "Curbside" as "Kerbside"? Did I miss something?
0
It's not an issue that affects functionality really, just a change to the spelling of a word, that is now incorrect. I guess it is concerning because I see it for every location that uses this service, which makes me wonder if someone has found a way to hack in and change this across the board





I don't know if this matters, just thought I'd point it out, it used to say "curbside"

Hi, Kaleigh MACKAY
 
Welcome to Google Maps Community Support Forum & thanks for your query.
 
I noted the following explanation in Collins dictionery regarding the difference between Curb and Kerb
 
 
In this way, both the terms Curbside or Kerbside can be used interchangably to mention the raised edge between a pavement and a road.
 
Neverthless, you can suggest to have different spellings depending upon the selection of device language EN-US or EN-UK, through the send feedback route.

Yes this is dumb!  It used to say curbside now says kerbside for everything that had curbside before.  Who changed the spelling?  I feel like I’m in a different country or something no one uses kerb here

Google - Please change it back to curbside. Or give us the option.

It is because Google can do whatever they want and if they want to name it KERBSIDE than they can similarly if they want to change all of Canada to Kanada on their search site they can do that too because they have all the power to do as they please

A quick and easy decision I've now made is I will not support or order from a business that is labeled "kerbside".And before anyone comes back and say it isn't the business who's made this choice,it IS the business who can contact Google and have this reversed back to CURBSIDE.
GOOGLE SUCKS AND TRACKS YOU.SWITCH TO DUCK DUCK GO.

Dear Googletard,
According to the Michael's Dictionary Kerb is not an actual word. Fix it you illiterate dote!
Also according to your own internal dictionary it is not a word.

@Kaleigh MACKAY

But why did Google decide to change it? Were people complaining when it was spelled "curbside"?  Well they are now.
