Vincent asks...
What is the correct use of toward vs towards?
Anne answers...
In my dictionary, Webster's Unabridged, toward is mentioned first. It means "in the direction of." In today's English, towards means the same thing, but it is listed as a second choice. So, Vincent, I guess it depends on if you want to be 100 percent correct or only 98 percent correct.
