Alex Kasperavicius Posted July 23, 2009 Report Share Posted July 23, 2009 This misspelling persists in all versions of pbxnsip. Because I noticed it again in the beta preview for 4.0 I figured I'd bring it up: The default names for most of the extensions are mis-spelled as "fourty" - which displays on the phones. This is embarrassing if a customer sees it. From dictionary.com: 40 (forty) is the natural number following 39 and preceding 41. Despite being related to the word "four" (4), 40 is spelled as "forty", not "fourty". This is because etymologically (and still in accents without the horse-hoarse merger), the words have different vowels, "forty" containing a contraction in the same way that "fifty" contains a contraction of "five". The letters of the word "forty" are in alphabetical order; this is the only number that has this linguistic property in English. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
