Once more, class, can we review correct spelling? On the blackboard I have
written several words:
One of those is the correct spelling of the originally French term for an
exhibition or contest, originally a display of newly-crafted cars and
appropriately dressed ladies, now used to describe an exhibition and
among cars maintained or restored to original standards.
One of those is the term for a long hallway such as one finds in airports.
One of those is the Italian term for the same kind of exhibition or contest
as for the French term
One of those is a badly botched mispelling that as far as I know means
What amazes me, after doing this for going on 30 years, is that people can
argue the principle of the thing and STILL not be able to spell it
Concours -- exhibition or contest among cars
Concourse -- place where Curt goes to work
Concorso -- Italian version of Concours
concorse -- a badly-mangled mispelling.
Now, class, tomorrow we will take up the spelling and meaning of mark,
marque, and marquee.
All the best
