Article incorrectly claims that the dropped-e spelling "acknowledgment" is British, and that with-e spelling "acknowledgement" is US. This is reversed, as confirmed by Columbia ( http://www.bartleby.com/68/99/99.html ) and OED (login only site). Updating to reflect this.
- That’s right, the U.S. spellings of -dg[e]ment are WITHOUT the e. While some sources say the e is okay as an alternative spelling, it is usually considered a misspelling. —Stephen 17:26, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
With skepticism I see "confession" as one listed word meaning. With past observation of dictionary changes that have included a change in the word 'garnishee' to 'garnish' as example, I am also skeptical about the 'd' [now] found in the word. Beadtot 126.96.36.199 00:55, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
