5 Minute Grammar Lesson – Toward? or Towards?
Today’s topic is actually pretty short, you guys. Best I can tell, both toward and towards are correct. The difference simply depends on where you’re from.
Are you American?
If so, TOWARD is the preferred version and TOWARDS is technically counted as incorrect in formal writing. I should remember this when I write blog posts, because until I just researched this topic for my post, I honestly didn’t know the difference.
Are you Canadian?
Then, TOWARD is also your preferred version.
Maybe you’re British or Australian?
In your case, the preferred version is TOWARDS and it probably really grates on your nerves to see Americans moving toward anything.
And that’s really all I have to say about that topic. 🙂 Do you have anything to add?
