Its true, it can be either. Spelt, learnt, dealt etc.

Loose, on the other hand, is a word you use when you describe something that isn't tight. (Like certain female's genitalia - Paris Hilton, perhaps).

Also, I believe this topic belongs in a different section.

I gotta give you rep for that this guy tries to school us with a spelling lesson, then KO's himself with an incorrect spelled word. So classic, wish i would have caught that before you. lol

Spelt is not a word in any dictionary period, learn your tenses... maybe hooked on phonics?

You might have a quote from some dictionary but I still don't agree that can be easily added in...

Main Entry: 1spelt
Pronunciation: 'spelt
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Old English, from Late Latin spelta, of Germanic origin; perhaps akin to Middle High German spelte split piece of wood, Old High German spaltan to split -- more at SPLIT
: an ancient wheat (Triticum spelta syn. T. aestivum spelta) with spikelets containing two light red grains; also : the grain of spelt

This is the definition of spelt has nothing to do with the word spell.
