Not bugs but typos...

Post by Cecil » Sun Jul 17, 2011 7:17 pm

I'm not sure if this helps but I've spotted a few typos whilst going through the game:

In Vilegard, when talking to Jolnor, the character says "unneccessary". Should be "unnecessary"

The person you follow up Blackwater mountain says, "You should definately not head any other direction than east". Should be "definitely"

He also says blackwater without a capital B

In Prim, Tonis says "We deserately need help from someone from the outside in our village of Prim". Should be "desperately".

In Prim, Fulus says, "This dagger is extermely valuable to me". Should be "extremely".

In Prim Inn Laecca says, "Thank you for your conern". Should be "concern".

In Prim Tavern, Birgil says "I do have a huge suply of mead". Should be "supply"

In Blackwater settlement, Herec says, "But my expertise is in examinating". Should be examining or maybe examination.

I could also risk getting flamed (if I'm not going to be already for being too picky) by mentioning that "nevermind" is not really a word but it's used quite a bit in the game.

I'm not going to mention the American spelling of things like "rumor" and "favor". That might get me into trouble... :D

Thanks Cecil. I'll update that right away.

I blame the fact that English is not my native language :)

Please note any more misspellings that you might find!

There are a few problems with the dialog with the innkeeper at the Foaming Flask.

First of all, a patron of an inn or tavern is a customer. It's not a synonym for 'owner'. So instead of asking 'Are you the Patron' ask 'Are you the innkeeper?' or even 'Do you own this place?'

then s/available for food and drink/available in food and drink/
s/wide selection of food and beverage/wide selection of food and beverages/

Also in the Fallhaven Tavern
s/what drink you have available/what drinks you have available/
(though maybe /what food and drinks you have available/ is even better, given that they mostly sell food).

If you are going to pluralize beverage, you should also pluralize food. Both, oddly enough, can be considered to represent small or large numbers and/or quantities of each. i.e. "You only have that tiny piece of food" v "Look at all of this food you have" and "Would you like to see my vast beverage selection" v "I have only one beverage left in house." They are very generic and multi purpose, English is crazy : P, but it would be nice to keep them consistent I think (and singular because both being plural sounds weird when I say it in my head). Also, if changes will be made, you may as well add "do" to them e.g. "What food and drink do you have available?" or even simply, "What do you have to eat and drink?" or "What do you have on the menu?" to avoid all of it.

The patron thing needs to be changed for sure, that confused me to no end when I first saw it. ;) Perhaps you were looking for the word "proprietor"?

I never noticed the patron thing until this thread! :lol:

However, even if "proprietor" is not the word sought, it might be the best choice. As, if I remember right, all businesses were once termed "proprietorships".

It could have changed throughout the evolution of the English language, but currently I think "proprietorship" would refer exclusively to the act or condition of owning a store, not the store itself. I think "proprietor" can easily be substituted for "owner" e.g. "This business is under sole ownership." v "This business is under sole proprietorship." Oddly, though, the word "business" is commonly omitted from the phrase, "This is a sole proprietorship business" in much the same way that "occurrence" is omitted from the phrase "That's a first". People who know common American English vernacular know what that phrase means, but technically "that's a first" is nonsense.

Probably right for some dictionaries, but if you get into it, either is technically correct since there is no true legal distinction between owner and business in a proprietorship. :geek:

I also did not notice the misuse of "patron" but I agree that it is wrong. "Owner" would be the simplest fix, in my opinion. I have no problem with using "drink" in the singular, in the generic sense of "all liquid ingestibles" which would include the milk, for those places that have it. Thank heaven that Ardor's world is not yet infested by bottled water!
