Interesting thought over at the Rykert lake of indiscretion and gluttony, how the hell is the word "Waterski" spelled? Is it Waterski or Water Ski?
Our take? Its Waterski. One word. Then again, any word processor or spell checker makes it Water Ski.
Damn. The. Man.
Comment on the sinful site is as follows...we are inclined to agree.
Water is a modifier. So it is two words. Snow Skiing or Water Skiing. Both are acts of skiing, only the phase of the water underneath changes. I believe the argument to the contrary would cite baseball, softball, and basketball as examples. In that case, I offer this solution: the verb is one word (I'm going to go waterski.) and the noun is two (I just bought a bitchin' flourescent water ski.).
Well, thanks for that smartypants.
