Sorry (Just a little? Not really? Very?)

by Jean

I'm sorry image'Sorry seems to be the hardest word.....'   according to Elton John

Although it's not a favourite word, it's one of my favourite songs by Elton!

It certainly seems to be difficult to know how sincere the person is who is saying 'sorry'!
One of our group thought that it was rarely used with sincerity. 

What do you think?

Can I just say that in Standard British English we use an 's' in apologize - apologise!
Sorry, but these Americanisms really annoy me. Frown
