  • There is a United States tutoring site called 'wyzant' that actually uses the word maths rather than 'math'. Having reviewed the ever excellent site, wordnik, I get it that 'Maths' is correct; therefore I learned something! However, since the word simply is not used in American English, is this sort of dumb? Yes.. I have a life, but you know how it is to be a language person. It never sleeps...

  • Umm, they can use whatever they want. 'Flickr' is not a 'correct' word either but it's understandable.
