    Sorry for the typo.

    Hello!
    Is this sentence correct?
    Sorry for the typo.
    Can I also say "I apologise/apologize for the typo?"

    Re: Sorry for the typo.

    Yes. They are fine.

    BTW, the end-quote comes after the punctuation mark.

    Martin Luther King Jr. said, "I had a dream."


    Moderators, please correct me if I am wrong, because I have seen it both ways in this forum.

    Re: Sorry for the typo.

    Your punctuation is correct in AE.

    In BE, we write

    Martin Luther King Jr said, "I have a dream".

    Can I also say "I apologise for the typo"?
