Moulding or Molding?
Moldings or Mouldings?
. . . . . . .Good
It is said
that during the Boston Tea Party of 1773, Americans dumped tea overboard to
protest British taxation. As it turns out, not everything British was abandoned
that evening. The same early Americans might have written that . . . after finding something in the galley that appeared to be moulding;we journeyed below to
find some decorative crown moldings, which we made use of forthwith.
Good thing too. If these architectural details where made of polyurethane, they
would still be floating around the Atlantic to this day.
referring to Crown Mouldings, or Cornices as they would, the British have always
used the ou in the spelling while the Correct American spelling remains
without the u Having said this, American companies seem divided on this point.
American corporations that manufacture or sell mouldings have kept the Old
Word spelling in their company name and branding, perhaps out of conscience for
the historical significance of these decorative building material products.
notice that this site uses both words throughout various pages, as both are
used when customers are searching for products to buy online. Analyzing search
engine results, we find the traditionally southern states search under Molding
while the remainder seem to prefer Moulding, the spelling of which would also
be used to describe the blue stuff at the back of the fridge, or refrigerator,
if you prefer.
your spelling preference, we promise to deliver the decorative mouldings that
you order directly from our manufacturing plant, located near Vancouver,
British Columbia Canada, where we still tend to spell molding as moulding and
prefer to hang it on the walls rather than find it at the back of the fridge.

After all, you never know when someone might be dropping by for tea.
