I don't think anyone was questioning the spelling.

Seems to me that there was several different spellings at the top of the thread. If it's about pronunciation the spelling still stands and those who call it something else but spell it correctly need to go back to grammar school.

Like daughter without the r …
One friend of mine who, when giving a presentation, would pronounce the word like: date- err, kind of like he was making it plural.

When in doubt go to the Latin or better yet to Sardu which was the source but the verbs word order can get pretty tough

Partial credit, Terry. While you were first, your answer was implied rather than stated directly. New question: ghoti and tchoghs is 'wan 'n wan' in what language? Hint: not Chinese.

As I've learned in MENSA, straight answers are so predictable. I prefer answers that prompt other related questions. So, do you like tchoghs with your ghoti? :wink:

That is hilarious.
She would have be in the "sold-er" camp.
According to the Cambridge Dictionary, "sodder" is the American pronunciation (for some of us) and "solder" is the English pronunciation.
That's the problem, too many experts insisting they're right. :lol:

My Grade 4 teach said "Al-you-mini-um", and we all had to nod and look wise, but would never talk like that ourselves. :lol:

When I was in AIT at Fort Polk, Louisiana, we had a minority NCO who was there to teach us grammar. He told us that he was from West Virginga...

From various BBC programs I've watched over the years, it would seem that the British were the ones to put the extra "i" in aluminum. Must be an ego thing. :mrgreen:

I love the English "laboratory". It's so much more elegant. I wonder what the divergence of the USA verses English language will be like in 1000 years.

Melville Dewey thought the English language should be spelled like it was pronounced. Of course, he lost. However, the libraries still use his book classification called the Dewey Decimal System...at least the last I knew. Maybe that's been thrown out.

Perhaps "older" should be pronounced "odder" since solder should be pronounced "sodder." Will the world stop spinning if we debate it long enough?
