:grin:

Over and over, some of the terms used in the discussion of mushroom cultivation are misspelled, badly.
This is a list of some of these words, and their correct spelling.

i n n o c u l a t i o n i n o c u l a t i o n

t e r a n i u m t e r r a n i u m t e r r e r i u m t e r r a r i u m

s u b s t r a i t s u b s t r a i g h t s u b s r a t e s u b s t r a t e

p a s u r i s a t i o n p a s t o r i z a t i o n p a s t e r i z a t i o n
p a s t e u r i z a t i o n, p a s t e u r i z e
(in England: p a s t e u r i s a t i o n, p a s t e u r i s e)

d e s i n f e c t i o n d i s i n f e c t i o n

Both is possible.
I was more after the pasteuri... part, since the term is derived from the inventor of the technique, Louis Pasteur.

I've seen Inoculate spelled with one n and two n's It's more commonly used with a single "n", but it's listed in the dictionary with two "n's" as a synonym to "inoculate". Does that mean the spelling is accepted either way? I'm confused. (Which is the norm! :wink:)

Inoculate
Innoculate

I have seen it spelled both ways. Is one definately right and one definately wrong, or are both spellings acceptable?

I didn?t find "innoculate" in any hardcopy dictionary, and only in 1 online dictionary.
I strongly assume the one dictionary entry is simply wrong.

That's what I figured. I didn't have a hardcopy handy, and you probably found the same on-line entry as I did. Thanks Anno. Just don't cast a spell on me! :smile:

I get called the "Spelling Police " :confused: :mad: when I make mention of such horrible insults to mushie cult such as the ones you mentioned in this post . I worry about folks who seek to destroy brain cells , when they obviously do not have many to spare . :wink:
Here is my fave misspell (use it daily )
THANX Anno for the attempt at educating the less fortunate ! :cool: :wink: :tongue:

You'd be surprised how many of us care. I hate misspelling too, and feel very small right now, since I didn't know how to spell inoculate myself!!
Thanks, Anno.

Good post. Now if you could do something about the grammar. Read posts in other topics and feel I need a translator. I realize that a lot of it is just slang, but geesh it's hard to understand sometimes. Maybe I am just getting old.
