...and the inability to tell the difference between a disk and a disc.
I never understood the distinction. A disk has always been a round thing with data on it. Then the opticals come out and they change the 'k' to a 'c', but it is essentially the same thing when it comes down to the basics.
I'd like to add a 3rd distinction but only for plurality. So instead of having disks and discs, we should also have disx.
Then of course you can use "disk" but replace the 's' with a soft 'c', and end up with "dick". Or the "disc" option with a soft 'c' instead of the 's', "dicc". Replace the 'i' with a 'y' to get "dycc". Throw in a couple of silent 'h's for good measure: "dhycch", the y is phonetically a short 'i', but should be supplimented with the 'gh' (as in neighbor and weigh): "dhyghcch"
Please insert dhyghcch 2This comment was edited on Nov 17, 15:41.
