glamour
1
: a magic spell <the girls appeared to be under a glamour — Llewelyn Powys>

2
: an exciting and often illusory and romantic attractiveness <the glamour of Hollywood>; especially : alluring or fascinating attraction —often used attributively <glamour stock> <glamour girls> <whooping cranes and … other glamour birds — R. T. Peterson>

If you want to shoot glamour photography is there another way to spell it that I don't know about? I don't know if this topic has ever been covered here, but does anyone else have any ideas it?

I am not sure if it has ever been covered, but I woke up just this morning about 4 am, and couldn't go back to seep wondering bout it.

Googled... "glamour spelling"

http://mightyredpen.wordpress.com/20...or-vs-glamour/

By default the spell checker is American English so...there you go!

Now I'm just waiting for 'ax' to start showing up... like "We ax them" which seems to be the new American way of saying "We asked them". And let us not forget that abbreviation of 'you'..... "U".

Lingua Americana!

Some people just have a way of promoting illiteracy in the English language. It can be seen on facbook everyday.

That still doesn't explain why everyone uses glamour to describe "glamour photography" or does anyone ever use "glamor photography"? The name of this website is garageglamour.com, not garageglamor.com! Glamor doesn't sound sexy or classy like glamour.

Glamor or Glamour. Is one pronounced differently than the other? According to the dictionary that I have both are correct and both are pronounced the same.

Isn't it simply an allusion to the fairie magic we're supposed to be creating in our manipulation of light and shadow? We "glamour"-ize the subject.

Perhaps the ancestry of the word is French? Consider that the word amour (Love) is a major part of it? Aren't the French supposed to be amourous?

You must admit that there are certain words spelled multiple ways that just 'feel right' spelled one particular way. Perhaps "Glamour" is one of these?

Personally, I've never seen it spelled Glamor.


Oooops...I was, ummmm, not right.
Actually the source of the word was from the Scots...but the initial meaning was something else.

But, in terms of speaking of beauty in women and fashion, the common meaning now was an American invention...and not that long ago either.
