Semantics of cay vs key
Is there any sort of geographical distinction between the use of the spellings cay and key. -- Beardo 13:05, 25 September 2006 (UTC)
- The "key" pronunciation was more common in the British Empire, but other than that, no. -LlywelynII (talk) 11:50, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
- Once someone creates an article for Cay (group), we can then include a disambiguation sentence. -- Beardo 10:28, 22 December 2006 (UTC)
To someone who can format a wikipedia page, I say refer this to the List of English words from indigenous languages of the Americas: Words from Arawakan languages.
- that is "quay", which means a wharf/pier, but in context, might sometimes come off as "port" or "harbor".
- i believe the resemblance is coincidental. but, yeah, i too get them mixed up -- i grew up thinking the florida "keys" was a yank spelling of "quays", not "cays". 184.108.40.206 (talk) 05:53, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
