What's the difference between Marshal and Marshall?

Just wondering what the difference is between those two words.

I can answer this for you all!!!....

Marshall is not actually a word in its own right...... the 2 l's only comes into force when used in a plural manner.... i.e. marshalling....

Oooooohhhhhhh I knew that dictionary would come in useful one day!!.......

"Marshall" is for those who can't spell "Marshal" just the same as "Donnington" is for those who can't spell "Donington".

Zandbak, in England we use the word "Marshal" with on 'L' but I thought that in Belgium (and I think Germany?) you used "Marshall" with two 'L's? It's just a linguistic thing like licence and license, different language different spelling.

Actually not quite.

Licence is a noun meaning a certificate or a permit, license is a verb meaning to award a permit or to authorise something or someone.

Sorry, I'll go away and get a life now.

(And how many copies of Eats, shoots and leaves did you get for Christmas?)

Now now Mr W who's got his pedantic hat on today then!! Actually I was thinking of License in the American context rather than in English, bad example perhaps. How about Tire/Tyre?

Tire is just a mis-spelling of tired like Donnington is a mis-spelling.
