Amazing Tech...

"Fiber vs. fibre
There is no difference in meaning between fiber and fibre. Fiber is the preferred spelling in American English, and fibre is preferred in all major non-U.S. varieties of English, including Australian, British, Canadian, Indian, and Irish English."

For me as a non-english speaker "fiber" make more sense, thats how we spell it too. Fibre is for me like spelling fever "fevre".

fiber is American English

"fibre" is the "original" English word; "fibra" in Italian language
Sixty percent of the English language comes from Latin.
bestia -bestial, bestiality
schola-scholar, school, scholastic
mira-miracle, miraculous, mirage
obscura-obscure, obscured, obscurity
periculosa-perilous, peril
occupare-occupy, occupation, occupational
patria-patriotic, expatriate, patriotism


italian "farina" (flour) is in English "farina":
- a fine meal of vegetable matter (as cereal grains) used chiefly for puddings or as a breakfast cereal
-any of various powdery or mealy substances


Considering that the forum and the blog here is American...
(like color and colour )

Touring; thank you Oslo, Norway! greetings from Italy!

You are welcome :-)

Actually English is just a mix of Norwegian an Italian in the end

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...d_Norse_origin

House-hus, Man-mann, Queen-kvinne and so on.

But to stay on topic, have to say its incredible to see how progressive BMW are in all fields these days. Im proud to be a BMW owner!

House-hus, Man-mann, Queen-kvinne and so on.
actually English evolved from the Saxon language, when Saxons and Angles crossed from Northern Germany to the south and east of Britain beginning in the early 5th century.
Their language, Anglo-Saxon or Old English, transformed into Middle English.

The German language of today is quite similar to English.
You must have in mind however, that the German language of today is an artificial creation promoted from the 19th century onward. Almost till then the South and North of the Germany could not understand each other and had a separate cultural heritage.

Dear Nordic cousin.

To stay on topic; BMW is going to fly, with Boeing wings

Since BMW and SGL teamed-up, has anyone on here picked up SGL stock? I've been following them since the original announcement, which is when the stock was at its highest. It's since declined quite a bit. Wondering if anyone could chime in......

Interesting, I was in Boeing flight test also.
