    Three Quick Questions

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by PlotDeviceManager, Feb 4, 2013.

    Hi.

    1.) How do you spell "ca-mun-yen", like the religious type. (Sorry, I hope you can understand that.)

    2.) What is the proper way to spell "sell sword"? Is it sell sword, sellsword, or sell-sword?

    3.) Is there a specific forum for grammar here? I need to stick that sucker right in my Favorites Bar . . .

    P.S. Love the new look.

    I've only seen sellsword used once, in a fantasy novel I read a while back. So I'm not sure if it's a "real" word; I think the author just made it up.
