    Which is the correct spelling?

    Hi,

    Can someone tell me the correct spelling please?

    judgemental/judgmental

    I've corrected a piece of text but now I'm not so sure.I've looked on google and they're both listed!

    Thanks

    Judgemental


    That's what I thought thanks. It just confused me because it has both listed. Cheers

    With the 'e' if you're British.

    I would use the first spelling with the 'e' in it

    Now they are both looking funny to me the more I look them up oO

    I like your way of thinking!:D

    judgemental is correct !!
    I puzzle over weird / wired ????

    wierd !!

    sorry, autocorrect took me to wired

    A bit of input: (UK way) Judgement - personal take on something. Judgment - legal decision.

    Unfortunately the BBC don't understand this, but no surprises there.

    ​weird as an weirdo and wired as in wire both are different aren't they.

    is it none or non?
    Lose or loose?

    Earned or earnt???

    Depends on the context, but speaking generally for a UK audience both right now are used in similar proportion so both should be considered correct. It is a fairly new word, appearing in the mid 20th century in it's current meaning.

    Looking at other UK corpuses it appears journalists (or editors) strongly prefer Judgmental:

    I'd pick whichever looks best to you.

    I think I know what you mean, weird or wierd (it's usually i before e except after c ) however, there are some exceptions ( and this is one, so no help really)!

    I think they meant to write wierd and weird and auto correct stepped in and wrote wired:D
