Grey and gray.

Grey is the British version and is clearly the better way to spell it

like i said before, two different countries. so nobody is going to pronounce all words the same. :nerd_face:

Where did anyone call anyone wrong? Ive read the comments and I’m soo lost… I don’t she was calling anyone wrong she was stating that the word was used wrong in a weird way…

Let me explain.

In The US,
If a baked flour piece is sweet, they call it Cookie
If a baked flour piece is salty, they call it Crackers.
Biscuit refers to a bread as in “Biscuits and Gravy”

In the UK,
all the baked flour pieces, no matter sweet or salty are known as Biscuits.
I don’t think “Biscuits” as in “Biscuits and Gravy” are consumed in the UK.

Your Welcome.
