Endeavor vs. endeavour

  • Endeavor is the U.S.¬†spelling of the word referring to (1) an effort toward an end, and (2) to attempt by expenditure of effort. Endeavour is preferred in all other main varieties of English.



    Endeavor is sometimes just a formal word for try or attempt, and those words are often better. But endeavor is appropriate where the effort is sustained and challenging.
