I wonder all the time Why ‘American English’ conflicts with ‘British English’ though mother tongue is the same for these two countries.

I guess many like me get confused from time to time between American and British English usage.

Being ruled by British people for more than 300 years, naturally, I am partial to British English.

Which is correct?

Gray or Grey?

Both are correct. Gray is American English and Grey is British English.

Grey is said to be a neutral colour between black and white.

Grey was said to be a highly fashionable colour in the 18th century.

Grey can be warm grey or cool grey.

What about human’s Grey Matter?

The grey matter in the humans nervous system enables humans to control movements, memory and emotions.

So next time you are angry with your loved ones check your grey matter first!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Grey matter damage is permanent so don’t take chances.

      1. Your guess is very perceptive, dear Philo. However, my question was mainly about British vs American spelling, since Oscar Wilde was a British author. Why did he choose American spelling for his protagonist’s name? I know you don’t have the answer, but maybe some of your readers might.

        1. Then Gray must be a surname in USA and since surnames can’t be changed, Oscar Wilde must have stuck to that spelling
          Further Grey in Oscar’s country means mention of a colour not surname.
          I may be wrong.
          You may solve the puzzle to our relief.
          Or may be the word Gray symbolises ‘ever’ beautiful.
