It's pronounced with a 'Z' and should therefore be spelled with a 'Z.'

Eh?

I wasn't aware there was a differing spelling in there.

Ideot? Razz That's just ridiculous...

no. 'Realised'

IT'S PRONOUNCED WITH A 'Z' GOD DAMNIT!

Tell that to aluminium!!

What of Einsteinium, Rubidium, Potassium? Unless you actually do say rubidum... in which case, NO!

Also all British spelling is spelt like that. Realised, hospitalised, randomised, criticised. So at least we're consistent in our stupidity Razz

Well, Aluminium was initially 'Aluminum' in England as well. The guys who discovered it re-named it, and Webster did not.

Well if they renamed it then it's still 'aluminium'. I think they get credit over webster Razz

Also fish can be spelt ghoti.

gh as in cough, o as in women, ti as in nation. Point being that language is as wonderful as it is stupid. This is especially true of English.

Actually, English is just extremely hard. The only language harder I think would be chinese, as you have a symbol for every word instead of letters.

Not really. I mean... that's true.... but even most people in China use the Latin alphabet, spelling out the Chinese pronunciation.

Nah, Russian is harder.

And then there's the smaller languages. Those are a royal pain in the rear!

I'd imagine Russian would have latin grammar structure. And you're right about the smaller languages, Rasq. Welsh is pretty tough stuff. Not as hard as a new alphabet one though.

And Latin structure is fucking ridiculous. There is ABSOLUTELY no sentence structure. NONE. The way you interpret the sentences is all based on declensions, not word order. IT IS AWFUL!

Ok, I'm posting the Thread for starship troopers tonight, and it will contain the poll for the next book. Send any book suggestions you have to me TONIGHT by 10:00 PM.

Please make sure that suggestions are:

- Adult reading level
- Of an appropriate genre (no romance, erotica, scripture, ect)
- Justifiable length (200-800 pages)
- Well regarded, or personally appreciated

I will be recycling some of the more popular titles from this poll.
