What letter, or letters, is the ' replacing?
The “e” AND the “k”. Someone replenishing the guitar’s lice infestation and then licking off the lice, again. They have done it once before, and find the experience and the result tremendously gratifying. It also doubly infuriates the grammar police.
So you seem to be saying that the correct spelling is relicked, and we all know, that means licking something again.
Unless you're suggesting that its relicekd...
No judgement whatsoever about correctness of spelling. As writers can take liberties with spelling when they write, readers can also take liberties with guessing what the writers meant. I’m just inferring that the writer of that spelling wanted to put lice in and lick, again.
No, no, "relic'd" is what you're looking for.
Hey, no need to slur the Irish.
But did he/she?
object esteemed and venerated because of association with a saint or martyr
relics plural : REMAINS, CORPSE
a survivor or remnant left after decay, disintegration, or disappearance
a trace of some past or outmoded practice, custom, or belief
Middle English relik, from Anglo-French relike, from Medieval Latin reliquia, from Late Latin reliquiae, plural, remains of a martyr, from Latin, remains, from relinquere to leave behind.
Since there is no past tense of relic, it's either:
Reliced Re-liced. Meaning what exactly... that you've added more lice, again?
Relicked. Re-licked. I guess that means you licked it once again.
Relic'd. Since there is no correct past tense, this makes more sense that #1 or #2.
The Apostrophe D works best.
When an abbreviation or a proper name is used as a verb, add apostrophe d for the ending.
…It was later discovered that he had OD’d.
…We Prius’d it for the night instead of taking the big car.
When an “-ing” is needed, use apostrophe ing for the ending. [Remember that, though reporters think of the g as an “ing,” the rest of the world does not.]
Baited: Take a perfectly normal standard Telecaster, about $750, and scratch it up to supposedly make it look old, and then charge $950+ for it.
Pick one. Just don't pick #1 or #2.
o.k. - from now on.
Quit using "prolly" for "probably".
This is all very concerning
But ask him about the rule. You know like in legal cases, they’ll use the decision in past cases to inform the current decision. If we are making a noun into a verb, we should use already-established spelling rules. Ask him how we should spell relicked when applying already-established rules.
David Blaine isn’t that old.
He's retired, so I don't think he gives a hoot.
