I know you are a learned person, Eddy.
But this being an European site, we use the Queen's English here :P

Uh, Chris, read the following from the Merria-Webster on-line dictionary:

learnt \ˈlərnt\

chiefly British past and past participle of learn

Or is the Queen not British? 8) :shock:

The English queen, she sure is.
Proper English uses learnt as the past tense of learn, and learned as a synonym for scholarly.
