Default How Do You Spell It?

How do you spell isobaric. Is it isobaric or isobarik. I have seen it spelled both ways. Any thoughts?

OK... OK... OK

You will see the "k" spelling coming from eastern Europeans where "c" can actually take on the "ess" sound or the "chuh" sound.

Isobaric would be Yankey English.

Isobarique might be British or French.

Hi,
isobaric was used by Linn in their renowned passive and active speakers, and their little ones as well.
They featured "K" in most of their model names.

Could the isobarik version have started with them?

There are no rules in English that state a name must be spelled as words are. If the term Isobarik is used as a name that's perfectly all right. The word in English is isobaric.

Isobaric (adjective)- says the Concise Oxford Dictionary[Greek isobares 'of equal weight']
That's english(y) English, not yankey.

Then, Yankey should be jankey or jankej

Just to make confusion complete, in Danish it's "isobarisk"
But then again: "those stupid Danes"
