Simple Question

Post by OldManRivers » Sat Jan 14, 2012 8:24 pm

What is the standard for using 'toward" or 'towards"?
May God's gentle grace be with you.

Jim, they're interchangeable. I prefer "toward", and when I edit, I always change "towards" to "toward." I think "towards" is more common UK usage.
