What's the difference?


Fellow means a person - research fellow and also means colleague - fellow teacher. Fella means young man. A woman cannot be a fella but can be a fellow.


Fella just reminds me a bunch of 1920’s New York ganstas, “Fella” is misspelled, there is no formal word as “Fella”, and yet is very commonly used in a more colloquial way. Both mean young man or just a man or a person and as Abi said “Fella” is used for a man.


'Fella' can mean 'boyfriend', while 'fellow' can't.


You can only use 'fellow' as an adjective (my fellow students).

He's a tall fella.
Both have the same meaning but different regional spellings ;)


Fella is slang for fellow. It is not a real word.
