In poetical/rhetorical/fancy English, "naught" with an 'a' means "nothing" and in ordinary British English speech and writing "nought" with an 'o' means "the figure zero". Incidentally, "ought" used as a variant of "nought" died out in the 19th century, and can be found in Dickens. See Mr Micawber's remarks about annual expenditure and misery to find out more.

@contrex,
Contrex can repeat old prescriptions with the best of 'em but actual explanations always seem to elude him.

Fancy English is my kind of English.

btw my dictionary indicates that substitution of nought for naught is a US thing.
So naturally I would ignore it.

Dreadnought is an American guitar shape and size, introduced more than seventy years ago by the C.F. Martin Co. and now popular worldwide among rock, folk, bluegrass, and country musicians. It is not British (tho now Brits make them too). I have one, and I always thought it was "dreadnaught", but Martin seems to favor "dreadnought". tho confusingly their website also occasionally spells it "dreadnaught", and they ought to know. So we Yanks claim both.

What you talkin' about there, Abe? Brits are born with barnacles on their backs and salt water in their veins.
