In American english, it is spelled "sorcerer"
In British english, it is spelled "sorceror"

Hence, scientica can choose whichever he wants. :) But since the largest part of the swedish population seem to use american spelling and pronounciation when they write/speak english (from own experience), I would root for "sorcerer" (and because it looks better). ;)


Ok, that explains why I couldn't remember which was the correct spelling since both are correct.
Well, in sweden we learn the brittish english (I remeber learning the word colour as colour, color I leared from TV/computer/and others :))
In this case ("or" .vs "er") I prefer the brittish way (unless the Bush pays me to prefer the US spelling ;)). I heard some where that we are supposed to learn the "oxford english" at school but I don't know how true that is, but I know that we (at least when I learned the basic english) learn the brittish spelling/pronaunciation, american, austrailan (and other variants) (are)/was a bit of extra stuff (we've read a few texts on "american english" and "australian english" but mostly it's brittish english).
I don't know what variant I prefer, I only know that I prefer color over colour... :)

The majority you're speaking of is us the programmers, right? We've adapted to the "computer english" (this mix of all english with a bit dominance of american english and foo).

Yes, I guess I'm speaking about people who are well beyond the english they learned in school, and yes, I know quite many computer biased and academic type persons.

But then again, what the hell do I know, I mostly speak Swedish to them all anyway. ;)

Seeing hutch's cranky old 'b*****d', i was thinking of changing mine a bit too but i thought i would ask first-

Would it be appropriate if i changed mine to "Code f****er"

gladiator,

I suggest that if you did change your description to "Code f****er" it may mysteriously end up being changed to "fCoder" and you could be confused with an EX member of this forum. :tongue:

Well, i have changed it anyway and if there is any confusion i will change back to Code Warrior
Posted on 2003-03-11 02:44:11 by clippy
Wow... so many people have changed their "Code Warrior" title!
Posted on 2003-03-13 22:08:36 by jademtech
Yeah, and you probably want to change your title again, since the correct spelling is "guerilla" or "guerrilla" (both are valid, see "http://www.bartleby.com/68/52/2852.html"). ;)
