There are a lot of words that have slightly different spelling, but same semantic and sound, such as gray or grey, color or colour. There is also the case of dialog vs. dialogue (*see stackexchange question What is the difference between dialogue and dialog?), where the semantics are actually different (dialog is the exclusive name for a input/ouput box/window in programming/computing while dialogue is generally speech between a person. I happen to know this b/c I am a computer programmer). On further research of the word 'granade', there appeared to be little reference to the word except for unrelated names and a unstable/questionable slang meaning on Urban Dictionary (*see http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=granade). Is Granade the first case, the case of dialog vs. dialogue, or simply not a word?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
I don't believe "granade" is a correct spelling of any word. OS X spell check and the Oxford dictionary agree with me. In the case of dialog vs. dialogue, in terms of programming, you are correct, and Elliott may be correct in all other cases. Similar cases may be "theater" vs "theatre," and "programme" vs "program."
