On the Twitter stream this morning...
@iloomis Wondering: is it Lege or Leg?
@lanceIagena @iloomis I vote Leg. Lege lends itself more to mispronounciation. Within context, Leg should work. I guess.
@georgettedeemer @iloomis I'm wondering the same thing! "Lege" or "Leg"? There is also "Ledge". Twitterverse, what say you?
@lavasusan @georgettedeemer @iloomis Twitter defaults to the brief, so I say Leg. "Lege" looks like "liege" & we don't want to promote that POV. :)
@danseto @georgettedeemer I spell it "Leg" but pronounce it as "Ledge". FWIW
@lanceIagena @georgettedeemer @iloomis Actually, Webster's has "leg." as abbreviation for legislature. So "Leg."?
@georgettedeemer @lanceIagena Interesting about Webster's. I guess the period is critical in this case, huh?
@lanceIagena @georgettedeemer Officially, the period makes it an abbreviation and so grammatically correct. You can pronounce whatever way you wish.
@invcondemnation @georgettedeemer - I write "lege" but I like @lavasusan's solution of "Leg." and will now switch to that.
@georgettedeemer @invcondemnation I was hoping you'd weigh in. OK then, the consensus seems to be spell it as Leg. and pronounce it as Ledge.
@iloomis @georgettedeemer Ha. That's funny, because I was doing Leg but now I like Lege. I look at Leg and think, "body part."
@georgettedeemer @iloomis I think it looks funny too, but makes sense if you add the period to Leg. Then it's definitely an "abbreviation."
