So, in the USA, when are program and programme used?


Senior Member

(1) Program vs Programme: After I search in this forum, I get that program is used in America, and programme is used in UK. In the UK, a program is a computer program, while a programme is any other kind of programme, such as a television or concert programme.

So, in the USA, when program and programme are used? Could you please show me some examples?

<<Question 2 deleted - one topic per thread please.>>

Please help me correct if you find any mistakes.

  • Hello runnery -

    To the best of my knowledge "programme" is never used in America.
    I would only write "programme" if I were quoting from printed text that contains the word "programme."

    We write: computer program, television program, concert program, after-school program, etc.
