[Game] Last one to post wins!


Recommended Posts

Apparently that rule is terrible: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_before_E_except_after_C

 

The rule is very well known; Edward Carney calls it "this supreme, and for many people solitary, spelling rule".[1] However, the short form quoted above has many common exceptions; for example:

 

ie after c: species, science, sufficient

ei not preceded by c: seize, vein, weird, their, feisty, foreign

 

Some authorities deprecate the rule as having too many exceptions to be worth learning.

I don't visit as often as I used to. If you want me to see something, make sure to quote a post of mine or ping me @jean-luc
