Judgement Day

Judgement Day

I’m not too keen on spelling judgment without an “e.”
It simply doesn’t look right spelled that way to me!
Judge like fudge sure has one and grudge and pudge, the same.
Judgement makes so much more sense. Judgment is just lame!
“g” without an “e” is jug. That “e” when you renounce it,
and put a “d” before it? Impossible to pronounce it!
Arrangement has an “e” in it, so it just makes sense
to put an “e” in judgement, unless you’re really dense!
Merriam-Webster has it right when they say to use either.
Those that say you cannot just need to take a breather.
Those are all my arguments for spelling Judgement right.
So now it is not my fault if you do not see the light!!!!

The Ragtag prompt today is keen.
FOWC’s prompt today is judgment.

    Use your best judgment to decide if you want to use judgement or judgment. Either is acceptable. The key here, however you choose to spell it, you should always try to use it wisely.

    As an (retired) English teacher, I had to laugh at this one. Your logic makes perfect sense to me, but I had to teach it as judgment. “Why, Mrs. K?” “I have no idea. It’s just one of those English spelling rules you have to memorize.”

      Ah yes, that one. Did you teach “I” before “e” except after “c?” I added “And also, “Neither leisured foreigner seized or forfeited the weird heights of Budweiser.” I made that one up for the exceptions to the rule.

      Funny how the mind works. I’m the same way. Certain words just don’t look right spellied the way they are supposed to be spelled. Prior to 1700, truely was an acceptable spelling. Did you take Medieval or Old English classes in college? I took every one available and still use some words that are no longer used…or at least common. Barrow pit is one of them. Ha.

    A judicial way to look at it, but I prefer the e myself. My worst problem is affect and effect, always have to look it up, or maybe it’s telling me something affecting old age and the effect of memory dwindling. Or is that e and a?🤗😂

      Looks like judgemental is an alternative spelling for judgmental:

      judg·men·tal
      ˌjəjˈmen(t)l/Submit
      adjective
      adjective: judgemental

      First definition that came up on Google. Judgemental looks “right” to me, even though I’ll grant it was the second spelling given. And the definition used judgmental all the way through.

    I confess to never having even thought of spelling it as judgment, it HAS to be with the extra e or its jud-grr-ment!…
    … until i spell judgmental – you’d have to be mental to spell that with 2 e’s??? 😉

    I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again: English is a crazy language and it’s got to goe.

    As for truly in July?? It’d be unruly to spell it “truely”…Shurely?
    (where in the heck does the ‘sh’ come from in surely???? It shure ain’t there in surprise?))

      My third grade teacher, I just remembered in a memory flash, used to pronounce surely as sewerley! So strange. Only person I ever heard use that pronunciation. I don’t think she insisted we do so, however. She was probably feeling very superior about that her whole life. All the “hicks” in our little town saying shurely while only she was convinced it should be sewerly!

        You are forgiven! 🙂
        It was a long shot at best…
        … but stranger things have happened.
        We can always hope for the best. 😉
