Date: Tue, 19 Sep 1995 15:34:24 MST From: Tom Uharriet Subject: tardys vs. tardies A student is marked tardy again for being late to class. Does s/he ask, "How many _tardys_ do I have now?" or "How many _tardies_ do I have now?" I see it in local print both ways. Neither is in the dictionary. Is one spelling "right"?
