In the interest of my continued sanity let’s just go over the proper spelling of the various forms of the word ‘whine’.
Please note that, at no point…
Does the gerund form of the word acquire an extra ‘G’!
It’s not ‘whinging’…it’s ‘whining’.
I’ve seen this so often on the boards that I actually had to go look and see if the spelling-powers-that-be had changed it when I wasn’t looking. English can be tricky that way. You think you’ve got it down and then BANG! They add ‘walkman’ to Websters.
In the interest of my personal sanity.
Leave the ‘G’ out. You’re all adults (except maybe 'pun. But we love him anyway). All I ask is that we, as a group, stop mis-spelling this word.
‘whinging’ = BAD, you will surely burn in the pit of damnation.
‘whining’ = GOOD, puppies and bunnies love you. And damn, you’re a sexy cuss, too.
Thank you for your time.
