Americanisms

Don’t use spelling that is considered American or Americanisms:

  • you ‘fill in’ a form - not ‘fill out’ or ‘complete’
  • something is ‘free’ - not ‘for free’
  • colour not color
  • centre not center
  • organise not organize.

The exception is for names - eg: International Civil Aviation Organization.
