Practising pedantry

Postby Kentucky_Freud_Chicken » Thu Aug 06, 2009 6:35 pm

The front page of the website (and the description given by google) says:

"ClinPsy.org.uk is a website for aspiring clinical psychologists and those with an interest in the practise of clinical psychology in the UK"

As 'practise' is a verb and 'practice' is the noun, shouldn't it be "the practice of clinical psychology"?

I wasn't going to say anything but I've started losing sleep over the matter so I need some closure.

As a proud pedant myself I will happily amend it, though my editor is glitching so I'll need DaveJM's assistance and can't do it immediately...

I've done the front page (thanks Dave) so it should filter through to Google in due course. Thanks for noticing :)

I remember a discussion with a fairly imminent UK psychologist who didn't travel as she wanted to progress quickly in her career and progress she has! However, she said looking back she has no idea why she was in such a hurry to progress as a year or two is no time at all over the duration of you entire career and that the opportunity to travel for a year or so doesn't come up often once you are on the career treadmill and start making commitments such as mortgages and having a family.

Is she about to happen?

I thought the same thing but decided to put my pedantry aside - glad you didn't :wink:

Ooooooooh! I'll be watching your posts very closely BC (and Matt)! :twisted:
