This article should be about dead time in general, about any process. --Thydzik 06:28, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Paralize[edit]

This article uses "paralizable", but wiktionary prefers paralysable, and the major reference for this article (Leo) uses "paralyzable", which is also the clear winner according to Google. I have left the spelling as is for now, since the major dictionaries I quickly looked at do not have the word, and I am not familiar with wiktionary etiquette for handling poorly established spellings.

I have replaced all instances with "paralyzable" for now (I suspect the difference between "paralyse" and "paralyze" comes down to English/American English). It seems to have the most support in peer-reviewed articles and I can only find this on one or two personal websites. In any case it seems like the most logical origin for the word in this context. --  Newty  16:19, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
