Hi,

What is the difference between OK and okay, There's no difference, they are just alternative spellings.

and should they be used in sentences? Yes, but remember that this is an informal expression.

Don't use it in formal writing, eg a college essay, a business letter.

We use it very much in speaking, but try to avoid it at times when we are trying to use our best and most formal speaking. eg Don't use it when you talk to the Queen of England.

Best wishes, Clive

Capitalize, Suse. The online dictionaries authorize these: OK, O.K., okay. The second is becoming rare.

I know many people who, when texting, will give them "different" meanings. When asked, "How are you?" They will respond with "okay" if they are, indeed, okay, and "ok" if they are not actually feeling well, but don't necessarily want to seem needy.
