It is hilarious the posts you cherry pick to "warn" about name calling. They always happen to be people who share your opinion on the subject.

I and others have been called much worse by the rachel cheer leaders that conveniently went unnoticed.

I used 'knucklehead' in a sentence directed at no one in particular.And get a warning.You really have to wonder if he realizes how these obvious petty displays of bias makes him look.

Nothing to do with phonetics. Has to do with misspelling one of the biggest training legends in the game...akin to going to a baseball forum and seeing someone spell it Mickey Mantel.

Always been a pet peeve of mine as well when someone on here spells it Lucas.

Hall of Fame trainer...one of the biggest training figures in the sport the past two decades...if you're a fan of the game, how do you spell that one wrong?

Absolutely not true. And I have proof.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if the people doing the most name calling are people I don't agree with in general.

But then, I'm sure you'll point to off-topic and boxcar....oh, but wait, I recently chastised Boxcar for namecalling....shoot...can't go there I guess.... I'm also sure you're convinced that boxcar and I see eye-to-eye on everything (which again, is not true). So maybe your theory DOES hold some water...

Next.

You couldn’t be more wrong, the notoriety of Lukas training accomplishment is not a provocation to remember how to spell his name. Most people are taught to spell phonetically because it is a system of spelling in which each letter represents constantly the same spoken sound.

If you believe that remembering someone’s achievements is a reference for spelling their name, then you taken linguistics to a new level.

But since "k" always has the same spoken sound and "c" doesn't, wouldn't "Lukas" have been the correct phonetic spelling anyway?

In my opinion the first response was a real tough sell. I don't know if I really want to read another one.

You are wrong because how would you know if you only heard the pronunciation of the word? Also, when “C” and “K” can be used interchangeably, phonetically they have the same sound. For example: cat and Kat, car and kar, cram, and kram, kart and cart, etc.

Therefore what is learned and taught is that we spell by sound, but alternate spellings are sometimes used even though the word is the same.

In general usage, “lucas” is probably spelled more consistently with the “C” usage and from a phonetic point of view it could be either “K” or “C,” but from a personal preference point of view, I assume that D. Wayne prefers “K.”

However PA, your original resplendent off-topic response in this thread definitely gives me pause for thought about your voracity to respond to a topic in a concise manner.
