Spelling Australian Style

We’ve put together a sample of English words that are spelled differently by different countries. Australian and British English are generally identical in the way they spell words.

These lists are not exact because language is always changing. Although an Australian word is shown with the British spelling, Australians may use its American version depending on personal preference or how they were taught in school. Confusing isn’t it?!

The part of an Australian word that differs from the American version is in red.
