Separate names with a comma.
Discussion in 'Mac OS X Lion (10.7)' started by applefan289, Jul 22, 2011.
Pretty sad, especially for a company like Apple. Read toward the end of the line.
That is pretty sad, actually.
10.7.1 Will fix that.
Maybe it's a new word, pronounced UN-uh-fide (not YOON-uh-fide), so "an" is more appropriate.
I don't see anything wrong with it. What am I missing?
It should be "a unified view" not "an unified view".
Should be "...a unified", not "...an unified"
EDIT: Beaten to it
I admit it doesn't sound right but aren't you supposed to always us "an" before a word that begins with a vowel?
Not necessarily, depends wether the word following has a vowel sound.
Anyone noticed this typo in OS X Lion?!
Apple's quality control is getting so much worse!
"...all arranged in an unified view."
You know you're doing a good job when...
THIS is what people are complaining about.
It's grammatically correct. Placing an "an" before a vowel is correct by modern language standards. Doesn't sound good when spoken, but it's textbook. Probably the work of autospell or grammar checker in MS Word.
Given the thread title I find it a bit humorous that this is a thread criticizing grammar.
not true (although i am referring to uk english here)
its grammatically correct to place "an" before a vowel if the vowel word has the vowel sound at the start
an apple (you pronoune the a for apple)
a unified (you pronounce it more of a y younified so if becomes a instead of an)
Oh. How should I have written the title?
Apart from starting the sentence with 'has'.
And maybe writing 'typographical error' rather than typo.
This is exactly what I believe - and I don't think American English is any different. I don't think Yanks say "Look! An UFO!"
"A union" is correct. Just as "an hour" is correct.
A vs. an is driven by pronunciation, not by spelling.
I just may have to go back to Windows because of this.
It is actually correct, since there is a "j".
unify - /ˈjuːnɪfʌɪ/
I just put that there to partly cover myself incase of differences
just like the saying
could care less
couldn't care less
in uk english they have different meanings, in US they seem to mean the same thing
Just because people say it wrong dons't make them mean the same thing.
can care is not the same as can NOT care.
indeed, and it was only said a bit tongue in cheek
You are wrong. It's a typo, simple and easy.
There is no "j" at the start of the word, that is the 'j of the phonetic alphabet, it is pronounced as a soft closed "y" ( y = <wh>, 'ju/'yu = <you>), therefore pronouncing you-nee-fi, or correctly spelt as ˈjuːnɪfʌɪ.
A unified interface. ✓
A UFO. ✓
Now is a great opportunity for us using Lion to double tap with three fingers and get the dictionary definition. The built in dictionary also provides an alternative phonetic spelling: ˈyo͞onəˌfī, which is slightly easier to understand.
