Just under 1 and a half hours from now until they post 'em for any UK people wondering.Around 8pm.
Not long now I guess.Btw wondered if it's okay to swear in the haikus? It doesn't say in the rules, but maybe it's a common wowhead rule?
There are seriously people who think that "Cataclysm" is three syllables, and will pull up internet dictionaries to argue in favour of their deafness?All instances of the sound "i-z'm" are two syllables. "Cataclysm" is no different from "Globalism" , "Capitalism" or anything else. Note that the phonetic is a z, not an s. The only way to pronounce it with three syllables is deliberately to deny the final pause. If you're doing that, you're just talking badly -- because you are pronouncing the s as in "small" and not as in "ism". Or you're speaking French. Note also that the break is between the i and the s. "Cataclysmic" is still four, because the final syllable becomes "z'mik"P.S. Not that I particularly need to do this, but apparently "Most dictionaries" disagree with a real one. The OED (i.e., a real dictionary -- one with weight behind it, rather than one not worth the paper it's not printed on) says it is four. As any normal person would.
