There are a few words which are not in my (Anniversary) dictionary that I’ve been puzzling over this week, and thought I would share with the group for advice.
The first is “worthwhile”. I think it can be written “u-u-th-i”, which is just “worth” with an I on the end. Trying to put an “L” on the end is awkward. What do others do?
The second is “forum”. I’ve tried “f-u-m”, which may be technically correct, but isn’t very readable. I’ve also tried “f-o-r-m” to distinguish it from similar forms, and spelling it out “f-o-r-u-m” which seems like a lot of effort. Any thoughts from anyone? I have started using this word frequently.
And the last is “in-person”. I first wrote “n” “p-r-s” but would read it as “interpersonal” because of the disjoint prefix “n”. I then tried putting a dash between the “i” and “person” but it’s awkward and slow to write. Has anyone else come across this word?
Thanks for having a look!
