Doughnut Or Donut?
It’s National Donut Day. And shops across the country are celebrating by giving away deliciously fluffy, airy, sugary goodies. But we’re concerned with the more pressing issue: Does anyone actually still spell it D-O-U-G-H-N-U-T?
Mary McCoy, senior librarian in the arts, music and recreation department at the Los Angeles Central Library, says that is her preferred spelling, though she admits “the O-U-G-H version is definitely unwieldy.”
“It is purely personal preference because upon looking into it, they seem to be equally acceptable,” McCoy explains.
Justifying her own choice, she says: “It just looks more official, though I don’t know why a doughnut needs to be official.”
Doughnut definitely came first
The word first appeared in the Oxford English Dictionary in 1782. “However, donut is almost always in the mix,” according to McCoy.
By the early 1800s, it seems, D-O-N-U-T became a legitimate rival to the longer version of the word.
There have also been a number of alternate spellings over the last couple of centuries and none seem particularly colloquial one way or the other, McCoy says.
