Dumb question.. Species name

Sponsored Links
Because curiousity gets me every time.....

Why is it that the actual name for a Jenday is spelled Jandaya, but we call them Jenday's?

When did the A turn to an E?

Was there an actual reason or was Jenday just easier to spell/pronounce?

Re: Dumb question.. Species name

Same reason a bunch of saps are called sapiens, I guess. As Steve Wright said...why do we drive on the parkway and park on the driveway? Seriously, that's a good question, so come back and share if you find a good answer to go with it.

There is little sapiens about our race unfortunately.

Re: Dumb question.. Species name

Why is an Altima pronounced Ultima? You dont pronounce altitude Ultitude ??
that one always bugged me (speaking as someone who can just barely spell)

Re: Dumb question.. Species name

All good questions!
Why would care-taker and care-giver mean the same thing?

Re: Dumb question.. Species name

English is probably the stupidest language to teach. So many,l if that, then this, but sometimes those and occasionally these. Chinese the hardest to learn, but English... I am glad I learned it as a child.
