Economical Correction of Spelling





AftershockVibe
Hey hey!

I am afraid I'm about to be a grammar Nazi - if you do not wish to be educated by a pedant look away now Wink

The subtitle for the Economics forum should really read, "Everything related to economic issues and marketing," as opposed to economical.

It's a tricky point to explain but economical is an adjective meaning "saving money" or "sparing". It doesn't mean "related to economics" in the same way that political means "related to politics". An economical issue would be an issue which saved you money, which I assume isn't quite what the title actually means to say.

It's really subtle. Especially since it must have been like that for ages and no-one has noticed before.

You're correct. It's an easy fix also.

Thanks for the correction. I'm not that good at English unfortunately. Wink

Of course! Materialism is currently winning the game, but fundamentalism is showing lots of initiative, and may be ready for a comeback...

Thank you, we need more grammar Nazis! That "economical" thing has bothered me for quite some time, but for some reason it never occurred to me to simply complain about it.
