Re: Difference between GAGE and GAUGE

I stand to be corrected but I think it is just a difference of spelling between 'American English' and 'English English'.

Re: Difference between GAGE and GAUGE

There is no difference between the spellings. It is spelled either way.

Re: GAGE vs. GAUGE - Difference between Gage and Gauge

In the English language there is a distinct difference between the words 'gage' and gauge.'

English language word 'gage' means to gain, gag (as in retch/choke) it also has a lot of other meanings like 'gad about' which means 'paint the town red.'


English language word 'gauge' means to measure or determine, test, judge etc. 'Gauge' is also the name of the device used to test/measure from as in go/nogo gauge.

There are lots of differences between British (or even Welsh) English and American English. As Shaw said, the English and Americans are two peoples separated by a common language. The definitions you cite for "gage" are not common on this side of the pond, where "gage" and "gauge" are synonymous.
