    As long as you don't say "intra-forum" I'm happy. It kills me when people get "intra" and "inter" wrong.

    I used to use the intranet at work before we were allowed to use the internet.

    When a word is hyphenated it is okay to drop the hyphen when the word gets used a lot as in email it started as e-mail but it is still okay to use e-mail

    Is a hyphenated word a word, or is it two words concatenated?

    One word.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyphen

    "The hyphen ( ) is a punctuation mark used to join words and to separate syllables of a single word."

    So on balance I would say one word. It's much easier in German where you just stack nouns together to make one noun.

    Turkish is even better :D

    Muvaffakiyetsizleştiricileştiriveremeyebileceklerimizdenmişsinizcesine
    = Like you would be from those we can not easily/quickly make a maker of unsuccessful ones

    Turkish, as an agglutinative language, carries the potential for words of theoretically infinite length.

    Podiums or podia?

    Or both/either?

    According to Wikipedia it is podia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podium

    The only problem is that Wikipedia is not always correct, but since we seem to have lost words like referenda we should keep podia.
