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)

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

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>

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
