How To Spell Traveling
Traveling is the actual movement of individuals between various distant geographic locations. Travel can be done primarily by foot, bike, car, train, plane, boat or any other mode, with or without bags, and is usually one way to get from point A to point B. However, travel is also more complex than that. Travel can also be one way, in which case, different modes of transportation may be used (see one paragraph above) and may even pass through one state or the other, although most travelers will experience some travel within a state.
Traveling involves many stages of progression. The first stage of progression is defining where you are going to be travelling, to what destination and how you are going to get there. The next part of this process is setting your destination. Next, once you have your destination established, you are ready to start travelling.
There are a number of travelling spellings for many common words and places in English, but the most popular for travelling today is simply “travelling” or “travel”. The three most common spellings are often spelt as Travelling, nevertheless, the word is also spelt as Trenchers or Trenciers. This is due to the fact that the spelling is slightly different than it was back in the Middle Ages. Back then, travelling was much more fluid and easy, so long as the terms for moving from point A to point B were carefully selected and written down in order to ensure that your route did not become overly entangled or confusing. Travelling has now become a much more exact science, but the traditional spelling remains popular and used in everyday life.
In British English, the words “travel” and “traveling” are treated as singular terms, while in American English, the two words are often used together. When you are travelling, there is no need to introduce yourself or state where you are going, as doing so could imply that you are travelling by yourself, which is not the case. Instead, you should state that you are heading west (or northwest, or southeast) and that you expect to arrive at your destination point shortly. You will then be expected to carry all relevant passport and visa documentation with you so that you can rapidly and easily make your way to your next destination.
In British English, when you are travelling out of the UK, you do not have to use the word “travelling” to indicate that you are leaving the country. In fact, it is considered far less grammatically acceptable than “traveling” would be. The British attitude towards travelling out of the UK is quite different from the attitude toward travelling into the country: once you are within its territorial borders, you are legally allowed to call your journey a journey, even if you do so from another country. Therefore, once you are within the UK, you should be aware that spelling of the word with a dash is also acceptable as long as it is not followed by an additional digit, such as: argyle-way. When travelling outside of the UK, on the other hand, it is far more common for people to spell the word with a full dash, such as: Birmingham-traveling.
Within American English, spelling the word “traveling” can have several meanings. For example, depending on what country you are traveling to, you may be using the word in a way that indicates travelling out of the country, or traveling around the country. Regardless, of whether you are within the United States or out of it, when you spell the word, you should ensure that it matches the precise meaning of the sentence as it is written. If you are traveling out of the US, for example, typing the following into Google Maps: “I am traveling from the United States to England.” Keep in mind that “from” is followed by a comma and an “in” after the colon, while traveling around the country is a single dash followed by a colon and then a space.
