Lesson of the day:, What I learned from the American, I realise I already learnt from the British


Lesson of the day:
What I learned from the American, I realise I already learnt from the British. The learned have discussed about this and realized it is not worth discussing any longer.
.
Explanation:
“Learned is often used in both British English and American English, while learnt is much more common in British English than in American English.”
“Learned pronounced as two syllables (ˈlərn|əd) rather than the one syllable verb (ləːnt or ləːnd) refers to a person, who have acquired much knowledge through study.”
In Sg, because of history, we tend to use British English. But internet tends towards American English. So it doesn’t matter which you use, as long as you use one style consistently in your writings.
Remember also that your MS Word is biased towards American English. Just because they flag your spelling doesn’t mean it’s wrong. You can always add these Brit Eng spellings into the dictionary.
You may have already realised this, or maybe, you just realized it now.

    Don’t get me wrong, I like it. Being called such in the past, so it’s fine by me. 🙂

    It’s a worthy peril to have. Especially if you have rather discerning students like yours truly. :p

    LOL, now that I have no more self esteem, I am not deserving of any students.

    I’m sure you will make a good teacher: with how literal and clear you are with examples and case in points just from that line.

    I dont know if that is laced with poisonous sarcasm or just mere sugar coatings.

    The art is in infusing both, and presenting it telepathically. It works best for sensitive heart and minds.

    What a waste then: you would have been able to bask in the multiple nuances I offer as a person. ;p

You can set Word to either UK or US English. Depending on what I’m writing, I make sure to set to the correct language so I remain consistent with my spelling. Also, dreamed/dreamt is another one like this example.
