Just a random thought. · 7:02am
Why do so many authors here spell "soldier" as "solider" in their stories?
It can't be accidental. It happens too often. There must be some reason--some inside joke, maybe.
It makes no sense. Nobody pronounces the word "solider" when saying "soldier"
I could understand spelling solder wrong, since it's pronounced "sodder," but soldier is sold-ger, not solid-er.
What am I missing here?
