amature vs amateur : Common Errors in English

About amature vs amateur

Most of the words we’ve borrowed from the French that have retained their “-eur” endings are pretty sophisticated, like “restaurateur” (notice, no “N”) and “auteur” (in film criticism), but “amateur” attracts amateurish spelling.

amateur Meaning(s)

  • (n) someone who pursues a study or sport as a pastime
  • (n) an athlete who does not play for pay
  • (s) engaged in as a pastime
  • (s) lacking professional skill or expertise
