“The gray area, the place between black and white – That’s the place where life happens” Justin Timberlake

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!😂😂

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

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

    Canadian use mostly British spellings, but some American. For some reason, I remember in grade 2 being marked wrong on a spelling test for spelling grey as gray.

    But the main character of the famous, one and only, novel by Oscar Wilde is Dorian GRAY. Why?

      Gray is the colour between black and white and anything can happen in between.
      My guess is the main character oscillates from bad to good…but then it’s too late.
      May be that’s the reason he is named Gray.
      I am not 100% sure Dolly.
      You can help me.

        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.

    It’s quiet a scary thing to think that grey matter damage is permanent.
