    One might also note the different spellings for the plural of storey.
    Both stories and storeys exist in English.
    I prefer storeys to avoid confusion with the plural of story.

    One might note the different ways of counting storeys in US, England, and Europe.
    I think the way the stor(e)ys are counted is the same, just the way they are named is different.
    A two-story building has a first floor (at ground level) and a second floor in the US.
