Hotdog vs Hot Dog Mon, 03/9/09 5:01 PM (permalink)
Hotdog is now commonly accepted as one word in most dictionaries - do most here prefer to spell it as two words?

    Perhaps because a couple of years ago I was chastised here for spelling it as one word.

        My Flock spell check thinks it should be 2 words. It thinks I misspell jalapeno though.

          Spell check is like map quest - years behind the times.

            It actually IS two words. That's why its two words.

                Two words for a frank, and one word for a show-off.

                  Is this seriously a concern for you people?

                  I'm in the bbq business and don't really care if you spell it bbq, bar-b-que, barbecue, bar-b-cue, or crap on a plate.

                  It's a hot dog (errr....hotdog) for crying out loud.  Just don't call it a frankfurter.  LOL

                    Not until I read the thread did I know what it was about.

                    I didn't notice the difference in the thread title.

                              I use "hot dog" when it's a noun and "hotdog" when it's a verb.

                                    Hey but to each its own.

                                    When customers start telling you it is one word now you may change.

                                    Mebbe not.

                                        Let's not go on tangents.

                                        We may argue agin about ketchup on dogs and mustard on burgers!  Or why you keep smoking when it is killing you.

                                            English is not exactly consistent - that is why it is so much fun.
