    'warrantied' or 'warranteed'?

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by gorweave, Aug 25, 2010.

    Can' t find a definitive answer on this. If a product is 'under warranty', is it 'warrantied' or 'warranteed'?

    Thanks,

    something is 'under warranty'... a 'warrantee' is the person to whom a warranty is made... the confusion arises from the similar word, 'guarantee' which is the 'warranty'...
