    severity or severeness

    I found out that severity is British whereas severness is American, but what are the other words to which we may apply the same rule: creativity/creativeness, what else?

    Where did you find that out? That is not a correct statement.

    but what are the other words to which we may apply the same rule: creativity/creativeness, what else?

    There are no such rules.

    Re: severity or severeness

    take a look at : severeness - definition of severeness by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    and also the Encarta Dictionary, then think about the rules because there must be some rules.
