How Do You Spell Syria?

Blessed with Spelling Diversity

I taught the Citizenship in the World merit badge to 40 Boy Scouts yesterday. It was a positive experience. We discussed the Syrian civil war. On a quiz I asked: What country recently used lethal gas on its citizens?

They answered: Aseria, Siria, Syria, serea, sideia, Sryria, syere, Siberia, Syrah, Syrria, Astria, Seria.

Someone once said: “I have nothing but contempt for anyone who can spell a word only one way.”
