Danack: fusillade762: I simply don't see the need to add an extra syllable to a word when you don't have to.

So, you write burgled in preference to burglarized then?

I don't know about him, but I certainly do! It annoys the hell out of me when I read a story that uses "burglarized"... It's just so ridiculous... It sounds like it should mean "to protect a place from burglars", in the same way that "winterize" or "weatherize" means to protect from the effects of winter/weather... So, installing burglar alarms would be "burglarizing" a place... Defeating those alarms and robbing the place would be burgling it...

That's one the Brits definitely got right and we got wrong... But, disorentated and aluminium? You guys have to just be joking about those, surely?

So how do you know if an otter is disoriented? It doesn't know the year? Who the president (queen? prime minister?) is?

Everybody outside the US spells it with the extra 'i', this is the official scientific name, but no, they are all wrong and can't spell, because America.
