Spelling confusion

Today’s Pearls Before Swine:


The phase/faze spelling confusion is covered in lots of usage handbooks and manuals — for example Paul Brians, here. I’m pretty sure that the cartoonist was aiming for faze here.

    Spelled “faze” in the Washington Post print edition and at http://www.gocomics.com/pearlsbeforeswine. Either it got corrected somewhere along the way or your source suffered a miscorrection.

    Fascinating. My source was the ArcaMax site, from which I get Pearls and Dilbert daily. Hard to know whether this was the original error or whether it was a miscorrection.
