tenants with tenets

It was interesting, just now, to note my shock at seeing several people in a comment thread spell 'tenet' correctly. Has my faith in humanity fallen that far?




Well, er - yes.

sarcastic response: I just hope they weren't discussing what one calls the people one rents an apartment to.

I think this is one of those cases where pronunciation and spelling have diverged, never again to meet. (I was in high school when I realized that the written word "paradigm" was the same as the spoken word I'd heard.)

I've always, for my own amusement, pronounced 'paradigm' as Pair O' Diggem!

But then, I am a nutter...

Which, of course, begs the question: so, why has your faith in humanity fallen as far as it has?

Well, in this case, obviously I've seen people misuse English so widely and frequently that I now expect to see it misused.
