ADMIN: "Original" vs. Origional
« on: February 02, 2008, 05:11:38 PM »
Yeah, I know, picky picky.  But, for two+ years I've been reading on this forum, the mis-spelling of "original" has bugged me.  Kind of like a grain of sand in my sock.  Would it be difficult to remove that "o" from the title of this section?  If so, just ignore me.  BTW, mis-spellings in other posts don't really annoy, (not to pick on you Doug!)  :)  This one I see every time I log on, and is a constant annoyance - just a minor peeve however.  Don't mean to be an proper English nazi, just thought I'd ask.  Thanks,
Ray

Thanks Andrew!   ;D

Like I said Dug, mis-spelling in posts is not a problem.

I believe the original Listers are from the England region which makes them origional. ::)

Never seen it spelled that way except here.  Only reference I could find is below.   ;)

Saw a banner once  .....DYSLEXICS of the world UNTIE........ 

  Spelling is important.  No need to be anal about it, just careful, before my seventh Christmas I almost addressed a letter to Satan.

dp....That's funny...  I often have to correct one particular spelling mistake I make when my little finger on my left hand reverses the s and the a in my name.  It comes out like this.

Most people go through life spelling words only one way...it is up to some of  us with creative minds to offer alternatives...if they don't see the genius in that, there is little else we can do for them....   ;)

Doug,

In my book a tyre is a removable rubber? device used on a wheel and a tire is (generally ) a non-removable addition to a wheel such as a band shrink-fitted to a railway wheel. 

But there again I am British and some words have different meanings - whoever thought the Americans would have an elephant on the back (generally) of their cars, a criminal at the other end and run them on gas which is really a liquid! (OK, OK even real gas - propane - is a liquid when in the tank).  Can be soooo confusing, especially when they are supposed to speaking using the English  language!!!!

So never mind the odd spelling, the words are often hard enough to decipher!

Regards, RAB

Doug

My problems started in French school, followed by English taught by a German.....

A lot depends on what you do abd where you live....
Americans say "rail road" and rail road tye. Canadians say any combination of rail way and sleeper you can think of, then we add a U any place we see an o ( Colour, Labour ect ect.. ).

Duck board and Ballycatter I believe are completely Canadian(ish) words that no one understands or will debate spelling on....
