Great question and it reminds me of an old joke. Is it scone (pronounced skoan ) or scone? It's a Scone (skoan) until you eat it and then it's gone (scone). sorry bad joke alert![Image: tongue.gif]

Don't Americans say 'dove' where we say 'dived'?
Definitely dived in an aviation context. (opposite of zoomed)

Then again, meat is hung, but people are hanged.

RE: Shined or Shone

I've heard that some men are hung like ... oh, never mind - it's nothing to do with shined or shone.
Speaking of which, I'd tend to take the easy way out by using an alternative word like gleamed or glome.

I was listening to a Jim Butcher story in the car earlier, on Audible. He said "dove."

'The Shining' definitely works better for me than 'The Shoning'. Smile
