Today’s Word: somber

March 26, 2018 =========

☆  somber  陰気な


So, when I checked my dictionary for this word, I couldn’t find it! Ha ha! Then I remembered that my dictionary is British English, and therefore the word is spelled sombre. It’s not such a serious or somber problem I guess, but it is amusing that even countries that use the same English language have different spellings!

I guess the good news about having different ways to spell the same word is that if you get the spelling wrong, you can always say, “Oh, I thought that was the American spelling…” Ha ha! Do you know any other words that are spelled differently in American English compared to British English?
