    Default How come none can spell Cancelled right?

    I don't know why but everyone spells cancelled like this: Cancled, Canceled, Cancelled and other ways like that. But I would like to know what is the corect way of spelling the word cancelled?

    The US and UK/Most other English speaking countries spell some words a little differently from one another. Cancled and Cancelled are both technically correct.

    Yeah though I feel sorry that SGU got Cancelled. I hoped it would have gotten several more seasons to.

    Either Canceled or Cancelled is correct. Most spell checkers opt for Canceled.

    It can only be one of the two ways to spell the word.

    If that's your opinion then use Canceled since that is what most spell checkers use.

    In UK English, cancelled is correct; in US English canceled is correct (according to Wiki).

    Languages don't work that way. As cultures separate from one another they gain their own identity and languages change with them. Many cultures have different use of a simliar language. Some Spanish words for example are used in Mexico but maybe not in Spain
