    I beg to differ.

    Gluing / glueing is like aging / ageing and many other words which may or may not retain their e.

    See Oxford. And see BBC ESL pages. And cf judgement / judgment.

    Of course, AE may have ironed out this inconsistency, but in BE at least we struggle on with both possibilities.

    As a european I prefer the british and I think glueing looks best. Thanks for your inputs.
