ESL learning: Humor vs. humour

ETO-Humour

 

Humor and humour are different spellings of the same word. Humor is preferred in American English, and humour is preferred in all other main varieties of English. The distinction extends to the derivative participles—humored/humoured and humoring/humouring—but in all varieties of English, the ‘u’ in the second-syllable is dropped from the adjective humorous.
