The spelling of the highlight

tcr! · Apr 18, 2019 at 12:47 pm

How the hell do you guys spell “high light” ??

The dictionary says it’s #1 below but all I see is “igh” over and over again. The horror.

1- highlight
2- high light
3- hilite
4- hi-lite
5- yellow marker

PS- those are your only options. Don’t make this more complicated that I’ve already made it.

#1, but #2 if you are talking about a light fixture that is far off the ground.

Fine. #1 it is. But I’m going to go with hi-lite.

I’d probably be high then 😊

Kris · Apr 20, 2019 at 8:31 am

No no no . We will have none of that

tcr! tcr! · Apr 20, 2019 at 12:48 pm

Haha! Yep. I’m done being high. Now I just hi-lite. 😊
