Hey Guys! Just a quick mod reminder to keep it crafty - this thread is pretty far off topic!
Thanks!

Keeping it crafty:

can anyone tell me what "T" is an abbreviation for in recipes? I assume it'll be a teaspoon or tablespoon but which one is fairly important  Wink

We do too, typically, but occasionally you get the weirdo that wants to save space in the recipe by taking out 2 letters, lol.
tablespoon is also tbsp

ages since anyone posted on this thread...

waaaaay back at the beginning, someone posted a semi-question about why english/american english words are frequently spelled and pronounced differently.  good ol' webster (as in webster's dictionary) was a school teacher back at the beginning of the USA and he decided that many of the english words were too difficult to spell and say for no apparent reason (colour is still pronounced "color").  so he wrote his now-famous book and the rest is history.

english of any form, from anywhere is a living language.  it will grow and change ceaselessly.

i get teased at the local crafts store for asking for anything "WH-ite".  i always pronounce the wh.  grandmother was a 35-year english lit teacher, most of my family are educators and i grew up an army/air force brat all over europe; took lots of drama and chorus classes.  so, even though i'm from texas, i speak with no discernable accent and crystal clear enunciation.  to balance this, my husband and oldest son speak really quickly, quietly and mumble a lot.  sigh.

to keep it crafty...i am living in the UK (for the past five years) and when i need to buy fabric or anything to do with yardage, i always have to bring a little conversion chart with me.  my brain just refuses to hold onto the numbers...
