Question by  shalom (271)

Which is grammatically correct: toward or towards?


Answer by  kkjinse (19)

They are technically interchangable. They are both prepositions, and the addition of the "s" doesn't make toward plural. However, toward is used mostly in American English, towards is used mostly in British English. Outside of the United States and Great Britain, they are used with equal frequency. The decision on usage is cultural, not grammatical.

"Toward" is correct and preferred, though you will hear "towards." If you use both forms in a sentence, there's no difference in the meaning. "Toward" is a preposition and has no plural form. "He walked toward the river" or "She saved the money to put toward a new car."
