A defective dictionary πŸ˜–

Here is a Canadian dictionary that wait for it...doesn't have WINTER in it...Canadian and NO winter. 😳 Whoops.

To add to this, I grew up spelling wintry as wintery (and my spell check actually corrected it as such. I don't usually trust spell check)...which according to Grammarly, is not incorrect, just not used very often.

I wonder if "wintery" is then actually the official Canadian spelling as I think Grammarly is US based. A few Canadian words have changed in common usage over time due to the close proximity to the US, such as color (Canadian) and color (US).
