Grey. I’m Canadian.
Grey, Canadian here.
American, very particular speller here (I won the school spelling bee in 7th grade) and I spell it gray. The concept of letting a word’s spelling change all willy-nilly doesn’t fly with me lol, but American vs British spelling has fairly clear rules. To me gray is correct because I’m American; same with favorite (vs favourite),realize (vs realise) etc.
I’ve also noticed online that over all people on the West Coast tend to be more stictly American in their spelling than people further east. Not always of course, but it often seems that way to me.
Merriam Webster lists it as gray, with grey as a variant. Too bad the poll didn’t have us distinguish ourselves by nationality for the purposes of this thread.
i spell it grey and i’m american.
I’m an American and I say grey. 🙂
I also say theatre. (Vs. theater.)
I have no reasoning on either of those. I just like the spelling.
