While typing up a story, i typed in defence, the way i had been taught. It got auto-corrected into defense. Could someone tell me which one is correct??

    Defence is BrE, defense is AmE. (On my screen, defense gets a squiggly line under it because of the spell-check dictionary is BrE.)

    I'm going to close this thread because we've had threads on this in the past, including this one. You can find more by typing in defense defence into the dictionary search box at the top of the page and then scrolling down past the dictionary entries. I hope that answers all your questions, but if you have any more, you're welcome to add to an existing thread. :)
