Anonymous:When and how could the words Appologise and Appologies be used in formal sentences?
Apologize (American spelling) is a verb.
Apology is a noun. Apologies is a plural noun.
I would like to apologize for the trouble I caused.
Your apology is accepted. If your friends would like to offer their apologies, they would also be accepted.
Does this help?
Doctor DApologize (American spelling) is a verb.'Apologize' has been accepted by the British as an alternative spelling of 'apologise'.
In fact, most -ize spellings are accepted in British English (some BrE dictionaries even list them first), and this is not a recent phenomenon or a borrowing from AmE. In modern times, though, -ize has become fairly uncommon in BrE. See e.g. http://www.askoxford.com/asktheexperts/faq/aboutspelling/ize
Anonymous:When I was at school in the U.K. many years ago, we were all taught that:
"...ize" was American usage and the British form was "...ise"
for all words ending in "ise".
