    I would be interested to hear the story behind the spelling of fordor..........maybe Henry wasn’t academically inclined............?

    When I read @X38’s post, I immediately thought of the Fordor spelling used by Ford, and later found @Clem’s post regarding same.

    I certainly would not purport to claim I know the answers to these frustrations and conundrums.......but I do think there are some interesting intersections and clever word play going on here.

    If King Henry (the earlier one, not HF) was a Tudor and if the automobile ‘King’ was also a Henry, in this case a Ford......see where this is going?

    It seems a small leap for some wag in the Ford marketing department to see the common threads and declare King Henry’s two door a Tudor and by extension the four door a Fordor. ;)

    One additional item....I am missing the point of how people misuse the pronunciation of Tudor and two door.......to my ear they sound the same (homonym ?) and so this would seem to be a ‘distinction without a difference’. o_O

  20. All it is, is proprietary spelling for marketing purposes by Ford.

    Okay, I understand accent variations and how this can affect perceptions. It also affects rhymes is songs and poetry when going from country to country and region to region - as in what rhymes in one accent my not in another. But I'll do my best.

    The period of English history is pronounced 'tew-dah' or 'chew-dah.' (To our ears.)
    In Australia when guys are talking cars that also comes out 'chew-duh.'
    What it doesn't sound like is 'two-door,' which what it is supposed to be.

    I hope everyone can get the accents in their head around that.;)
