    Spelling

    Hi,

    I live in Sydney Australia...I have made a spelling error on a recent project I was coordinating. The word should have been Kindergarten, however I spelt it as Kindergarden. Is this acceptable???

    It's an error according to Macquarie Dict. I'd call it an error. I haven't come across kindergarden as a variant spelling. As an English word, it doesn't need the German capitalisation though, unless it's a name.
