Wales, Scotland and N Ireland too. "Inventer" is not a correct spelling.

It's not a wrong spelling it's just the way the French refer to custard.

I think that one is the English spelling and the other Irish or Scottish.

Edit: Pretty sure it's Scottish as i've been looking at Scottish single malts- don't ask me which is which though!

Re: Different (correct) ways of spelling the same words.

One of those is the American spelling. The other is the proper Scottish or British way to spell.

As for Rooves I've never seen it spelt that way.

Rooves is a very old fashioned way to spell it.

My Collins concise says "programmer" and that is how I would spell it.

Two more here: analogue and analog.

The second is how it is used in electronics to distinguish a linear signal from a digital signal: e.g. An analog output of 4 to 20 milliamps.

This is where I got the info from:

https://english.stackexchange.com/qu...plural-of-roof

Looks as though you could be right as of of these comments claims that it changed in 1755 (though others disagree).

I only realised that there were two possible spellings in use after starting a thread asking if VM still do installs over roofs/rooves

What is the person who does the code programming referred to as, programmer or programer?
Scotch Whisky, Irish Whiskey, American (bourbon, rye, corn, etc.) whiskey.

Japanese (such as Suntory, Akashi, Nikka, etc.) tend so spell it "whisky" on the labelling, as does Mackmyra, the Swedish Whisky company.

re coder - programmer.
