It’s ‘Tenet’ not ‘Tenant’
Ok, so the next time i see a post anywhere with this silly terminology/grammar i’m going to scream so loud everyone in the UK and across the Atlantic will hear it. Im losing count of the number of times i’m seeing people use the word tenant when they should be using ‘tenet’
- The 4 SOA ‘Tenants’ : Stop. Please. Unless you are talking about services that have to pay someone rent, it is ‘SOA Tenets’.
- The Workflow Tenants: Aargh!! Again, unles you mean a workflow which lives in someone else’s home and pays rent, stop. Its ‘Tenets’. [Although workflows are ‘hosted’ in other processes i’ve yet to see any host process demand payment upfront!! 🙂 ]
In case you want more evidence, check out MerriamWebster Online or any good dictionary
- Tenet: principle, belief, or doctrine generally held to be true; especially : one held in common by members of an organization, movement, or profession
- Tenant : one who has the occupation or temporary possession of lands or tenements of another; specifically : one who rents or leases (as a house) from a landlord
I know languages evolve and all that but sometimes things can get downright ridiculous. This hasnt got anything to do with language changing. Its the wrong word. Full stop.
Aah! Now i feel better already. I know its a bit of a rant but i couldnt help myself 🙂 .
