Convertible or Convertable?
you don't have a dictionary? sheesh
If it was that easy wouldn't you think everyone would spell it the same?
convertible is the noun used to describe a car with a framed fabric top that can be retracted manually or automatically and stowed to the rear of the back seat in various ways.
Convertable is probably an adjective, applied to anything that can be converted, ie: my couch is convertable to a bed when company comes.
Another waste of bandwidth.
this word is NOT the most commonly misspelled word on the HAMB...but it's probably close to #1
Unlike the ever-annoying use of "then" for "than" or "manufacture" for "manufacturer," I wasn't aware there was a problem. If you're talking about a car with roll-up windows and a roof that can be lowered, that's a "convertible."
then/than, should of instead of the correct should have, your/you're, I seen rather than the more correct I saw, I could go on, but this is a useless thread anyway. Most of us can understand what is being said irrespective of the spelling. I just always consider that "people judge you by the words you use", and your text is as important in telling us how much attention you paid in school as it is in telling us how much you give a rip what anyone thinks.
Don't make me post a pic of mine... It's convertible!..
Did Ford copyright Fordor and Tudor? When did Ford first offer the Fordor, how many doors were there?
A convertible top converts a open car to a closed one.
Kinda like what this Closed Button does for Threads...
