    or/er

    What's the differences between these two sets of words?

    - Adaptor
    - Adapter

    - Trainor
    - Trainer

    Thanks.

    Does this mean that the two (adaptor & adapter) are the same?

    .
    As far as I know, the preferred spelling is adapter. But both adapter and adaptor are accepted spellings for the same thing.
    .
    Trainer is correct. Spelling this word with "-or" would simply be a spelling mistake.

    So this means that there is no such word as "trainor".

    Thanks.

    Not really. I just remember I have come across this before. Anyway, I can't remember it anymore. Thanks.
