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.
“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.
