Is lable British?

Answered by Antonio Sutton

Label is a word that can be used in both American English and British English. However, there is a difference in spelling between the two variations. In American English, the word is spelled “label,” while in British English, it is spelled “labelled.”

This difference in spelling is a result of variations in spelling conventions between the two dialects. American English tends to simplify spellings, while British English often retains older spellings or adds extra letters. This can be seen in other words as well, such as color (American English) and colour (British English).

So, to answer your question, “label” is not specifically British or American. It is a word that is used in both dialects, but the spelling differs. In American English, it is spelled “label,” and in British English, it is spelled “labelled.”
