- 4US spelling of draught (noun).
- US spelling of draught (adjective).
mid 16th century: phonetic spelling of draught
Do not confuse draft with draught. Draft means 'a first version of a piece of writing' or 'make a first version of a piece of writing' (I drafted a letter of complaint), whereas draught chiefly means 'a current of air' (heavy curtains cut out draughts). Draft is the American spelling for both senses.
