There are many precedents for changing the spelling and pronunciation of words.
In some parts of the country people say “INsurance” and elswhere they say “inSURance.” Some people say “jewelry” and others say “jewlery.”
One word that most people seem to have the hardest time with is “February” which they pronounce as “Febuary” so why not drop the first “r” and be done with it. This month I’ve heard many radio and TV announcers and newscasters pronounce it wrong more times than I could count.
While we’re at it, we could change “lieberry” as well.
