    Spelling lesson

    Please people, use the proper word for what you mean.

    Peddle = sell or offer for sale from place to place
    PEDAL = A lever operated by one's foot that is used to control a machine or mechanism, such as a bicycle or piano

    Break = interrupt: terminate; "She interrupted her pregnancy"; "break a lucky streak"; "break the cycle of poverty"
    BRAKE = a restraint used to slow or stop a vehicle

    There are many more but I am too lazy to write them down. Oh and sorry for wasting your time.

    I may be new, but I know forums arent a place for perfect spelling. If i wanted to learn gramtically correct statements I would enroll into an english class... (fml i have to soon anyway). We should all know what the idea of the statement phrase is anyway. Commonsense or no?

    Unfortunately my Litespeed "Pisgah" is pronounced "Piss-gaaa". Or is it?

    The first time I read a word, my brain's pronunciation of it tends to get stuck in my head forever. I still think "rally" when I see Raleigh, and "peg - ott" when I see Peugeot.

    This one gripes me quite a bit:

    mixte = meext, not mix-tee

    And then people spell it mixtee or mixty or mixtie… Ugh.

    I like how this has become a pronunciation thread.

    Not noticing your sig, that one took me a little bit of thinking to figure out. Did they think it was three L's or something?
