My single biggest pet peeve in homebrewing: acetaldehyde is five syllables, not six. Far too many people pronounce it as "aah-see-tul-al-duh-hide", when it should be "aah-sid-al-de-hide."

When in doubt, think of that old hippie "Acid Al" DeHyde.

Do the people who criticize spelling errors on a beer forum feel inadequate or something else, do they need to justify the perception they have on other members by thinking they are smarter because they can spell or punctuate better. This is the problem with society,if we all were here to chat about and share experiences with homebrewing this would be a better place. Some people get on websites like this to get away from all the a** holes who try to act superior because they either know how to use spell check or feel the need to put others down so that they can justify the thoughts they have on they're own intelligence level. Oppps they're there or their.....

My biggest pet peeve is people that pronounce the t as a d in acetaldehyde.

You're right, of course... of course here in NJ we pronounce most of our T's as D's. Especially when we're "down the shore."



To Dudest: I don't think it's about acting superior, but rather trying to educate others. The lack of basic understanding of the language is sometimes appalling, and only getting worse all the time. If you can't communicate properly then you can't communicate effectively.

I disagree it easy enough to communicate with just a flip of the finger if need be or a facial expression or writing with capitals or using exlimation points ect. People tend to educate themselves if they give a sh:-) t.

Nothing to do with beer, but a very common mistake that gets me is the misuse of the word "Calvary" instead of "Cavalry" (I'm a bit of a civil war nut as well as a beer nut, but not a religious nut!)

I have even heard recognized history academics on Youtube confusing these two words!

Dunno why it should bother me .... but it does!

Brian.
