1 - Blonde/blond. Apparently, though the English dictionary has both words, the American one allows only for the masculine spelling. It didn't look right when referring to a woman, so I left it as it was.
2 - Leapt/leaped. I know American English is less likely to use -t than -ed, using 'learned' where I would say 'learnt', for example, but googling lead me to various discussions regarding this particular word, which left me confused as to whether I should change it. In the end, I did. Doesn't look right though.
Anyone have any insight/ideas on either of these?
