In The Apple Tree

Memories are made of these


Enrol is the standard spelling in British English, which breaks the general rule that British words carry with them an extra consonant. In many cases, such as traveling-travelling, canceled-cancelled, totaled-totalled, labeled-labelled, etc., it is the British spelling that contains the two –ll’s.

But, in the case of enrolment, the standard spelling in British English only has one l – enrol and yet in past tense it is – enrolled.

in American English the word has two ll’s – enroll and enrolled.

The origin of the word

The word enroll originated from late Middle English (formerly also as inroll ): from Old French enroller, from en- ‘in’ + rolle ‘a roll’ (names being originally written on a roll of parchment).

An elephant run wild, drunk on rum, calls for a female without hope of being understood. What to do? It is not 1947 now.
