Default How do you spell "clippie"?

On my personal Facebook page my friends have lovingly dubbed me as the grammar police and the spelling bee that stings, but I have a confession to make. I'm fully aware that I have been misspelling "clippie" when I write a description of my items. No one has called me out on it, but it's just a matter of time. I think they are waiting for that special moment to zing me for all the times I've corrected their grammar and spelling. When I describe a clip I've made I ALWAYS spell "clippie" with an -ie and not a -y on the end. I see lots of people that spell it in singular form with the -ie on the end. I just love the way the -ie looks; isn't that silly? I can't seem to let -y have its moment.

How do you spell "clippie/clippy"?

PS ~ If I made any grammar or spelling mistakes in the post, it's not my fault. Um...the sun was in my eyes? Yeah, that's it; the sun was in my eyes.

Thanks for the laugh I never realized how I spell it until right now. Clippy.. yup that is how I would spell it if I described it using that word. However I always have said clips. Nothing wrong with either way.. lol

I always spell it clippie as well, even though I've questioned myself on it as well! I just like it better...

I am right there with you!! I fully believe the correct way is with "y" yet I always use "ie" in my descriptions. I've had this thought as I type up my descriptions and wonder why I do it but it really does just look cuter with the "ie"!!

LOL - I am OCD, especially when it comes to grammar and spelling. I even correct my posts and IMs! I also spell it "clippie," even though I've questioned it. Technically speaking, I believe "clippy" would be correct for the singular form. Oh, who cares? I think it looks better spelled "clippie"
