To grammar police at GLP: Mystery or Mistery?
My first language is Spanish, and I know English enough to post meaningful things over here.

I consider that I am a 7/10 about english command.

At spanish, Mystery/Mistery is written as "Misterio". So, many times (like at the thread about photons and gravity) I use, but not mistakenly, the word Mistery. And lot of GLPers have a good time mocking at the thread subject. They even are offended of me pretending to write thoughts in english and refuse to keep reading, but not before they post their indignation.

Well, this is from two english dictionaries. Enjoy!

Re: To grammar police at GLP: Mystery or Mistery?
dont pay attention to the grammar nazis. if english isnt your first language, you should get a pass. its spelled MYSTERY with two Y's i know the english language is confusing. i had to teach all my boys this when they were learning to spell because they like their father spell phonetically and not the actual way that words are spelled. i showed them an awesome old rerun of Ghallager - the guy who smashes the watermellons on youtube. he does an amazingly funny segment where he makes fun of how confusing the english language is when it comes to spelling.

i learned German and Spanish in high school, German is probably the closest to the english language out there. there are offshoots of german where i can get by like DUTCH. Spanish is a whole nother animal for me since i am not really into the romantic latin based languages. i only learned work place conversational so i could get by if i had to.

I wouldn't dare to tell someone who's born with english as native tongue!

I just want to point out that my mistake by writing "mistery" instead of "mystery" is, luckily, correct.

"Mystery" has 499 million matches at Google.
"Mistery" has 7.25 million matches at Google.

I understand that "mistery" is old english and the wide acceptance is mystery. But give "mistery" a chance, as it
figures at equivalent at several dictionaries.

As I read once, many years ago, english took words from german but also from french and scandinavian languages.

Spanish seems to be nurtured by latin, french, portuguese, just to start with.

Spanish has changed noticeably in the last 150 years, as english did (and I assume that it happens at most languages).

Also, I know that "mistery" was used more 100 years ago, along with "mystery". I posted the matches searching google and the ratio of appearance is 490/7.25, with "mystery" winning.

Re: To grammar police at GLP: Mystery or Mistery?
"Mistery" is how some people used to spell the word that were not learned. "Mystery" is and has always been the right way to spell the word in English. The reason you may find references to the improper spelling is because not as many people knew the correct spelling of words in the centuries becore modern time.

Watch this thread. I started it by April this year.

It has two mistakes: "unresolved" instead of "unsolved" and "mistery" instead of "mystery". Nobody complained then.

The spirit of the post captured the imagination of GLPers.

Today, many went with full force agaisnt me for using "mistery". Bad mood today or I'm making people tired of photons and gravity? I suspect the second explanation.

I have to stop with technical posts.

You asked the question, and now you want to argue the answer? You posted above about google..

Even GLP spell correction underlines Mistery as needing correction. And yet here you are still bitching about it.

Piss off.
