“Edicate” is not proper “Etiquette”


Welcome all miss-spellers of the word “Etiquette”.  You
must be wondering how your google searches for “Golf Edicate” or “Hotel Tipping Edicate”
or in some cases “Strip Club Edicate” yielded so few results.  Well,
that’s because you, like me, are spelling deprived and would probably shudder at the
thought of living in a world without spell checkers.

Well, I do have something I can offer you where Google failed…

 

Did you mean???

Tipping
Etiquette

Hotel
Tipping Etiquette

Strip
Club Tipping Etiquette

Golf
Etiquette

 

I’ll add more as they come in.

Enjoy,

  1. And people doubt the power of the blog!!!

    Your link to "Hotel Tipping Etiquette" occupies the NUMBER TWO position on Google. That’s Pole Position -1 to you NASCAR maniacs.

    Josh, you should be proud.

    Pool etiquette. Why? Because, last night, these two guys didn’t want me to challange them for the table.. They wer speaking fighting words, so I was talking fighting works back…so, needless to say, we almost got in a fight over it. Not because I or my friend are roudy, but because I was drunk and they were a smartass about it.

    Bless you, friend. You are a gentleman and a scholar. Never before have I felt so warm an embrace from the usual cold, unfriendly hand of the Internet. Lo, I came to Google for help with "eticate" and got you instead. How the hell does it make sense to spell it "etiQUETTE"? That’s my question to you, O, God of the word etiquette.

    I have no idea why we spell the way we do other than knowing that our language borrows so much from other languages that we sometimes are left without recourse for wierd spellings.

    I assume that with the advent of texting, however, that we’ll soon be spelling everything with less than 5 charactors.

    I find this really amusing because I use google as my primary spell checker, I had known this was wrong but word would not auto correct it.

    Now because of this site google does not offer anouther word choice either. Quite funny.

    I’m not the only one… just the most popular. 🙂

    Thanks, Josh. I was typing a Word document and couldn’t remember etiquette. Unfortunately, Word couldn’t figure it out. So I Googled the Word and YOU were on top! Congrats on a great site. Love it.
