    The proper term is Autumn, but I usually say Fall.

    At school I was supposed to call it 'hydref' (which coincidentally is also the word for October). I don't think I've ever called it fall in my life.

    I am saying Fall far more frequently thanks to my brief stint in the US. Fall at least makes me sound different and interesting over here so I don't mind it so much.

    I say Fall, and I'm actually really surprised that most people here seem to say Fall as well. I figured it was more acceptable to say Autumn.

    Signature by rubah. I think.

    I use both interchangeably, but I probably use "fall" most often.

    I thought it was an American thing and seeing as most members are of that persuasion...

    Note the use of W's as well as L's, likely implying this individual did not mean to indicate the lack of multiple L's or multiple W's.
