In modern usage toward and towards are equivalent although toward is the more common American version and towards the more common British version.


There is theoretically a minor difference when used as an adjective or adverb (instead of a preposition). However such usage is uncommon in modern English (found only in Shakespeare, Spencer, and similar writers of that period).
