Board and lodging

Is it ‘board and lodging’ or ‘boarding and lodging’?
The former is found to be correct according to BrE, while the use of the latter is very frequently seen/heard.

I’ve never heard/seen the latter.

It’s found (very many times) among the non-native users of English.

Beeesneees,

  1. When you come for interview, you have to make your own arrangements for boarding and lodging in Delhi.
  2. Many boarding schools charge for food and lodging.
    Are they not correct?
    If they are wrong, please correct them.

1 isn’t. It should be ‘… for board and lodging in Delhi.’

I’ve heard of “room and board”.
Here’s some more information on the subject: “board and lodging”

Beeesneees,
As per your instruction I modified my #1 sentence as below:

  1. When you come for interview, you have to make your own arrangements for board and lodging in Delhi.
    Is it OK?
    How can I modify the second sentence -
    “Many boarding schools charge for food and lodging.”?
    Can I say: “Many board schools charge for food and lodging.”
    Is it OK?
  1. It is correct English, but “board and lodging” normally refers to accommodation over an extended period of time (weeks at least). If you were going somewhere for an interview, usually you would stay in a hotel for just a night or two, assuming you couldn’t get there and back in one day. I wouldn’t call that “board and lodging”. You could say “accommodation” instead.

  2. The second sentence is also correct English (though whether there are any boarding schools that don’t charge for food and lodging seems debatable). “board schools” is wrong.
