I'm just wondering, how many of you actually use traditional spelling? For instance spelling magic as magick. vampire as vampyre or fairy as faerie? People often critisize the way my friends and I spell "Magick". I think tradition spelling has a more interesting touch to it...

Traditional? where'd you get THAT idea...

If you do your own thing, thats cool...but personally, Magic is Magic goddammit...that stupid Special K is just another whacked out crowleyism. Vampyre? right...whatever, florid extra Y's just seem sort of silly to me...like you can't read and understand it well enough when it's spelled Normally. Traditional in what respect? like old english? did you ever see Old English writing...that shit was spelled different ways every freaking sentence...and as for Fairy and Faerie...Faerie is old school, Fairy is San Fran hot pants down at the brass rail. And whats WORSE! Why the hell do people mangle english so bad...'specially in chatrooms...fuck, I can read ANYTHING they say anymore...
Back in my day dammit...grumble grumble...

Pyce out!

Just so ya know.... Magic and Magick aren't the same thing. People practicing witchcraft or any form of dark or light arts added the " K " to the word magic to distinguish the two. Magic refers to the stuff actors (or whatever those people claim to be) do on stage, for example: Sawing a woman in half. Magick refers to old healing techniques, summoning demons or whatnot, and the basic casting of spells.

As for vampyre and faerie. I don't know what the fuck is up with that.

I'm all for creative spelling when it adds to the meaning of what you're saying. Changing vampire to vampyre says absolutely nothing to me.

You can have lots of fun with spelling but not by trying to make yourself look cool by pretending you're speaking olde english. Olde englysh was not kewl. The reason everything was spelled wrong in old english is because nobody knew how to spell. And I agree with Dolo about everything being spelled different every thyme time tyme tiym tahm thayme tihmme - that doesn't make it cool in any way, just illiterate.

These are creative fun ways to mis-spell:
Do you want to cum over after work?
Are you're whoremoans making that chair uncomfortable?

These make you sound like you want to be creative and literate but aren't:
I'm a 500 year olde vampyre (trapped in a 16 year olde bodye)
My Magick is more stronger than your magic

Haven't we had a similar conversation such as this before Devin? Yes, sometimes I like to spell vampire, vampyre just for the hell of it. I don't do that to make myself look "cool" and I love to spell night "nite, because I prefer it. So do whatever the hell you wanna do, and if you ever become a published author, you can get away with mispellings. Lord knows how many mispellings or such you will catch in books during a lifetime.

I don't use 'magick' or 'vampyre', but I do use 'faerie' and 'grey' (as opposed to gray), since it looks better... *shrugs*

I also write grey. I have always preferred it that way. Why the hell not? Whatever floats your boat. Whatever tickles your pickle. Whatever spanks your monkey.

If you really wanted to be "traditional", It would be neither "fairy" nor "faerie" but rather "fayery" and would refer to the place where the beings lived and not the beings themselves (ie; Nuns all live in a nunnery, and the fay live in a fayery). Of course, running with that kind of internal consistency, I would say that a drunkard is someone who drinks to excess, anyone named Richard is someone who is rich to excess, and I guess a bastard would be someone who bastes to excess ("Take that, turkey!").

Anyway, I have far, far too many anglicisms in my everyday lexicon for me to get irritated about somebody else's literary affectations.

I used to write flavor as flavour and honor as honour, then I decided I was doing it only to be pretentious. I like to write gray as grey because it sounds prettier to me. (I'm so superficial...awww.) I write fairy for pretend fairies, like in a costume, but I write fae and fey for real faeries. (Ohhh...worry if I'm delusional.) I stand by my claim.....I do what the voices in my head tell me to. Muahahahaha.

If memory serves me, I think we were taught in school that there are quite a few differences between English and American. I am just too giddy right now to remember any of the examples!
Baaah, and I just HATE not having any of the languages down to the fingertips, I'd LOVE to express myself like most of you guys do, and not using five words to describe something because I don't know the correct term. It sux
And since it obviously went unnoticed the first time (frowns at Ironboots ) Magic and Macick ARE two different matters, even to those who disapproves of the content of either. It was not an invention to be 'special', simply to point out the difference.
For example - my band, Magicka, was originally called Magica (hommage to Disney's Magica de Spell) but I found out later that that name was taken, and since I DO include references to magick in some of my lyrics, the natural choice was to add the extra 'k'. I really would have preferred it without, since I too am a bit tired of 'magickal mystery' BS.... (Sorry MRD, no offence intended!)

The differences between english and american spelling tend to annoy my english teachers! I normally write colour as color and all the other words that are meant to have a 'u' in them like that I leave out. I think the words look better without the 'u', pluss it takes longer to type!

Also stuff like 'theatre' bugs the hell out of me. Why can't it be "theater"?

Yeah... colour/color, flavour/flavor, armour/armor... all that stuff. I always get taught to spell it with the U or it justs gets marked wrong, hehe. Now it seems odd to me to see it without.

As for vampire/yre, I prefer wampire, my step-daughter's version. Somehow it just brings to mind vampires with big mallets, going around whacking people with them... WHAMP WHAMP!!!

I like grey rather than gray, but that's an alternate spelling in the dictionary, isn't it? Faerie looks nicer than fairy, and I agree with the Disneyish connotation of the latter spelling. But writing faerie just seems a trifle affected, so I don't bother. As for extraneous letters, etc., that kind of annoys me, but if you really want to, I won't stop you. But the people who are addicted to that kind of spelling often DO end up being "wannabe's", so it's a temptation to make a quick wannabe label when I see someone using y's for i's and adding e's on the end of words.
