Program vs Programme

20 January Saturday 2018


Program vs. Programme Program mı Programme mı?

In British English, program refers to computer programs and their programming, and programme is used for all other senses of the word. New Zealanders tend to go along with the British distinction, and programme is preferred by government and the media. Australians have for several decades been moving steadily to adopt program for all senses, but programme is still used, albeit much less commonly, and seldom in the media and official publications. Americans and Canadians don’t use programme at all, preferring program for all senses of the word.

İngiliz İngilizcesinde, program bilgisayar programlarını ve programlamayı anlatmak için kullanılırken, programme ise kelimenin tüm diğer anlamları için kullanılır. Bu ayrım konusunda İngilizlerin peşinden gitme eğiliminde olan Yeni Zelanda'da da devlet ve medya programme'ı tercih etmektedir. Avustralya'da onlarca yıldır istikrarlı bir biçimde her anlamda program kelimesi benimsenmiş olmakla beraber çok daha az ve seyrek de olsa medyada ve resmi yayınlarda programme da hala kullanılmaktadır. Amerikalılar ve Kanadalılar programme'ı hiç kullanmayıp, kelimenin tüm anlamları için program kelimesini tercih etmektedirler.
