Math & maths are both acceptable, why won't you accept that, polx? Either one is just as correct as the other. But what I wonder is: since when do abbreviations take out the middle of the word (e.g. MATHematicS)? Doesn't it make more sense to shorten it to just the first couple of letters? After all, Chemistry is shortened often to Chem, not Chemy. :S

Ok Alex, how can you say that the word is spelled without an S in the US and with one in the UK and say I am wrong.

You've tacitly admitted I am right by admitign it is spelled correctly in the UK.

I continue to contest that it is spelled wrongly in the US.

I am already 66% proven right.

I say it's maths in the UK, so do you.

I say it should be maths in the US, you disagree.

Dammit, I'll get you lot to change yet.

I am off to gather my canadian forces (both Anglo and Franco) for a long bitter campaign to get you lot to say ZED.

Methinks thou hath gotten it wrong, polx.

Language changes, mathematics was shortened to maths (in the UK) and math (in the US). Math itself is a recognized and bona fide word in the dictionary, along with mathematics. It is spelled in the USA without the s at the end.

Alex.

It has always been mathematics

Do you study MATHEMATIC...?

It would appear that your own dictionary supports my point.

The word is mathematicS, which is oddly not pronounced in abbreviation with the S.

I accept that this is the way it is pronounced in the USA, but that is immaterial as it's wrong.

Do you study PHYSIC?
