When is “L” doubled?

If I am using the word model in the context of financial models and the UK, then which of these words should I use? Also, are there any key difference in the meanings of the two?

Best Answer

There is no difference in meaning. The single-L spelling is more common in the United States; the double-L spelling is more common in the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand. I don't know which is more common in other countries.
