In Reply to: Toward posted by ESC on April 30, 2003

: : : Are the words "toward" and "towards" interchangeable? Or are there rules governing when one or the other is used? Someone just asked me, being that I'm considered an authority on obscurities here at work, but I really don't know the answer.

: : : Any help would be appreciated!

: : Oh, sorry about the typo on the Subject line...

: My Associated Press Stylebook says: "toward. Not towards."

"Towards" is the British form, "toward" the US form.
