Dunno if it was brought up...

You can spell it both ways, collectables or collectibles.

I suppose correct spelling doesn't matter if you want to look like a complete moron.

However, zeppo616 is right: there are two spellings for "collectible", but "collectable" is less common (as indicated by my Firefox spell checker). There was a store in a town near me that sold "collectibales" How's business in there, Butterslover21? :D

Google doesn't offer a definition for "collectable," heh. And Firefox has it underlined for me, which means it is not the correct spelling.

A car ain't a horse and Google ain't a dictionary :D

Merriam-Webster has "collectable" as a variant spelling of "collectible."

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/collectable

The American Heritage Dictionary agrees:

http://www.bartleby.com/61/79/C0477900.html

(Strange-- they don't have an official online dictionary)

I would check the OED, but those limeys want an $295 annual subscription out of me.

I relied on my Firefox spell checker, as I indicated previously. I stand corrected.

Butterslover21: looks like it does matter ;D

Well, you and four others cared enough to bother making a reply. Why else would you post on a thread whose subject you want people to think you don't care about?
