I sent the following message earlier. But, I just did a spell check on
this message. It accepted "scaleable" and prompted me to replace
"scalable" with "scaleable".

Because the e at the end of a syllable determines the pronunciation
of the other vowel in the syllable, I would opt for scaleable (sounds
like pale) as opposed to scalable (sounds like pal). There may be
exceptions to this rule. But, this is generally true.

I need some quick help on spelling -

The word is <scalable> or <scaleable>
meaning that something (a technology) can be scaled to handle a large number of

I cannot find the word scalable or scaleable in the dictionary - and even if it
might be another MADE UP WORD where I work, it's going into a presentation for
upper management. Since so many of those MAKE WORDS UP PEOPLE work here, I
have to use it.

What do you think - scalable or scaleable

thanks alot Cynthia
