My partner is certain that the words 'potato' and 'tomato'
are spelled 'potatoe' and 'tomatoe' in Australia.
I feel that this is very unlikely. Can any Australian linguists shed any light?
Standard Australian English is the same as British English, so no, there is no 'e' on the end of either potato or tomato, however, the usual does apply with their plural, adding 'es'. I am a teacher in Australia. Your partner is pulling your leg!
I have lived in Australia for 11 years. They are definitely spelled 'tomato' and 'potato'.
Where did she get that idea from!? we spell it just the same as everyone else. Tomato and potato.
No they do not have a ''e'' on the end. it's tomato and potato
Actually, we don't even call them that. We call potatoes "starch nuggets" and we call tomatoes "wog berries".
