    Forwards/forward?

    Hi,

    I'd like to learn the correct one, if possible:

    "During the pronunciation of most sounds, the tongue is pushed forwards"

    "During the pronunciation of most sounds, the tongue is pushed forward"

    Re: Forwards/forward?

    Both forwards and forward are used as adverbs. This is from The Grammar Logs -- Number Six Hundred, Seven
    In the U.S. the word "forwards" has otherwise almost disappeared except for set phrases like "backwards and forwards," and "forward" is used most of the time as our directional adverb:"He leaned forward until he almost fell off the deck."
