I don't know why your pronunciation key has no vowels in it. 'chic' is pronounced 'SHEEK' while 'chick' has the soft 'i' -- so for rath's dialogue it would be 'chick' right?Zendorox wrote:Actually Chic is the more modern use. If you read anything written in the 70s, you'll find it spelled "chick".Shiesty23 wrote:pooklette wrote:I have sort of a left-field question for you guys...
I'm writing a fic where Rath is one of the characters and I'm trying to duplicate his horrible accent and slang. In my fic, he never refers to women by their first names, but by various obnoxious nicknames. When you're referring to a woman as 'a chick' how exactly do you spell 'chick' in that context. Everytime I type 'chick' I feel like it looks wrong...like I'm referring to a chicken. Is it chick, chic, or what?
The slang spelling of it is: Chic
