TOWARD and TOWARDS
QUESTION: What's the difference between TOWARD and TOWARDS?
These prepositions can be used quite interchangeably and that there is no difference in meaning. The only slight difference in usage is that toward is perhaps more characteristic of American English and towards more usual in British English.
