    (By contrast, practice is the favoured American spelling for both noun and verb. So much for consistency – which, I note, no-one spells with an ‘ns’…)

    (…Buggrit, you know what I mean. At the end. ‘nsy’. )

    Anyway. Yeah. Joe Bennett. Wonderful column.

    sought to match spelling to pronunciation

    the way of the future as we return to a mainly oral culture digitally.

  • Mark Graham,

    You should read Flat Earth News. roughly 80% of news stories in the UK are straight PR items. Sucks but keep reading the Guardian.

    we return to a mainly oral culture digitally

    going digital but throwing away the manual,
    as it were, leaving only speech

    applying digits to the oral area usually results in 'talking into the great white telephone...' according to the Junior Upchuck Manual

    Junior Upchuck Manual

    truly (as Dorothy Parker almost put it),
    not a book to be tossed lightly aside,
    but hurled with great force

    Surely that belongs on the other thread?

    Well, I like to think of it as having equal -eerrrmm- equal application...

  • Phil Lyth,

    (almost a threadjack I know)

    New on the Ministry of Health website, they are listing their meetings w/ Big Tobacco. Recent meetings include discussion removal of power walls.

    This is required under a treaty, Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. I suspect all Ministries (and Ministers?) will be obliged to report meetings. Must ask.

  • nzlemming,

    Definite threadjack (because I’m too tired to go looking for the original thread)

    Briefings to Incoming Ministers are out

    I’ve found 2 that haven’t yet put them up so far (the External Reporting Board and the Commerce Commission), and two doc files (CreativeNZ and SportNZ), one xls (to be fair it is an appendix to Treasury’s BIM) and one docx (Health Quality & Safety Commission). The rest all offer PDF files, a few offer HTML versions as well, and a few offer doc files alongside the PDFs.

    Happy downloading ;-)
