    When I was at junior school (late 1970's) we were taught the correct spelling was 'yoghurt' but these days more and more people are spelling it 'yogurt'.

    I'm just curious to know what other people were taught xx

    I've always spelled it yoghurt, but have also noticed 'yogurt' more lately. Think I'll stick to yoghurt!

    I always spell Yoghurt with a 'h' - it must be the way I was taught to spell it because I have always spelt it this way.

    Thank you all. With an 'h' it is!

    The first time I wondered was when I realised our local Sainsbury's had a big sign over the aisle without the 'h'.

    I spell it without the 'H' but I used to live in the States which probably explains why!

    I've never noticed it without the H.
    *rushes off to check all the different "yoghurts" in the fridge*

    Edit - well I never!! The Mullers and the Tesco natural yoghurt don't have a H!

    A quick check of my (old) OED has it spelt without a H (although the H spelling is listed as an alternative).

    Yes it's the blinkin American slang creeping in! No offence to anyone American but it would be nice to stick to proper english as we're living in the country that started the language!! LOL!X

    I always use an 'h' in my yoghurt too! I think it gives it more flavour. Not flavor.

    Yoghurt for me!

    Ya know...looking at the number of uses of it on this thread makes you realise how weird a word yoghurt is!

    Or is it just me? x
