Dictionary.com Word FAQs

Which is it: judgement or judgment?

Judgment is the preferred spelling; judgement is a variant spelling. Unless you have a good reason to go with the latter, choose judgment. In the UK, judgement is still the correct spelling. But ever since Noah Webster decreed the first e to be superfluous, Americans have omitted it. If you write judgement you should also write colour and tyre!
