GRAY OR GREY ??
 
HI EVERYONE I´ve been through the site and I came across several worksheets on colours with the word "gray" instead of "grey"! As it appears so many times... I was wondering....Am I wrong when I say "Grey" ???!!! Greetings from Portugal

Hi Lucia, no you are not wrong. ´Gray´ is incorrect.

Gray or grey are both correct - it just depends were you are from. It´s like "colour" or "color", "cheque" or "check"..

Exactly. Both are possible.
Grey (International and some parts of the U.S.) or gray (Some U.S. only) describes the tints and shades ranging from black to white. (in wikipedia.org)
