Usage v. usadge

Posted by Ed Stansell on October 16, 2002

Is usa(d)ge a British spelling? In our unabridged dictionary, I found no alternate spelling for "usage."

I know that we Yanks have our own spelling for some words, stemming from our desire to separate ourselve from the mother country. Perhaps this is one of them.
