I am in Australia if that helps.

My gut was learnt but I have spent too long with the "I done it" people that my I question my correct grasp of grammar

YY to learnt (UK) and learned (US). It will be okay as most people won't notice anyway as everyone speaks American English nowadays. <grits teeth>

a quick look on the net says they both mean the same but learnt is British English and learned is American English. HTH.

Oh bugger - I have printed 40 documents with learned before I thought about it.

How serious is it??

Is its a
you're/your type of error or a dialect thing ( ie I say amn't which to me is a damn sight better than arn't)
