British?[edit]

Maybe I'm going mad here, but having spent 21 years of my life in Britain, I haven't seen anyone, ever, spell this word 'kerb'. It's always 'curb'. I've also just consulted everyone in my office and all eleven colleagues have said they spell it 'curb', and collectively they're from all over the UK. Could this be one of those 'America thinks we spell it differently when we don't'-type scenarios? Tredici 08:49, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

I spell it kerb. Mglovesfun (talk) 08:38, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
After having done a splash of research, it seems even the British Highway Code is using the spelling 'kerb'. Looks like I have gone mad. Ignore this. Tredici 09:20, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
