Angela’s ‘special’ ABCs
This is a special post for my friend and neighbour, Paul-Enguerrand Fady (aged 15).
He asks, following the posts on advice and advise, practice and practise, licence and license:
‘What is the difference between defence and defense?’
The answer is very simple: defence is the UK spelling while defense is the US spelling.
The same goes for offence (UK spelling) and offense (US spelling).
