This.

Seriously.

Gemmer would indicate it is a person who gives gems, like, say, a templar.

Gemmed would indicate a person who has been given a gem, like, say, a witch.

This hits my peeve button every time. Minutely.

Doesn't have to be so ultra-literal. A nutter isn't one who nuts, a rinther isn't one who rinths, a necker isn't one who necks, a Stormer isn't one who storms, and a magicker isn't really someone who "magicks," although you can sometimes coerce "magick" into a verb. Looks like this "-er," as distinct from the "doer type -er," is pretty versatile as far as the kind of relationship it can signal, and in this use, it seems to have a vaguely derogatory feel toward the person mentioned. Perfectly reasonable system, and I'm tickled pink that Zalanthan language has developed characteristics distinct from everyday English, where this same meaning is not nearly as widespread (I can only think of "nutter," but there are probably others.)

(Conveniently, one would never refer to a Templar as a "gemmer" -- except maybe in some very specific and contrived context -- since that implies gemming mages is their main function, and that's not socially acceptable. So there is no room for ambiguity. "Gemmed" seems more formal and elegant in contrast, so we're probably just talking about a difference in spoken style level.)

I use bother gemmer (it's use is validated by Stormer, 'rinther, etc as previously pointed out) and gemmed (though not as much as witch).

I also f'king hate "gicker." It's stupid. "Witch"  "Wiggler" (as in finger-wiggler) "Drovian, Rukkian, Whiran"  those work too.

It's like calling elves 'neckers (I truly hate this) which came from "longneck" which is really a f'king bottle of beer.  *sigh*  Call them "point-ears" "sharps" "elves" or "points" or whatever.

Elves have never been described as having exceptionally long necks - but rather long LEGS.

While I'm on this topic I swear I will pk (or attempt to pk) the next person I hear refer to Tuluk as 'luk.  Hopefully we've gotten that out of our system.  Do you really need to shorten Tuluk?
Next thing Luir's will be simply 'irs.  Christ on a stick already!

Common usage. If a word is commonly used and understood to mean something, that's what it means. Period.

Luckily you guys appear to be able to keep your pet peeves to the OOC realm, since you usually only see IC scuffling over language where it would make sense, i.e. between people from different regions or classes. :)

I don't like "southron" because it's from goddamn LoTR.

Oh. I thought it was because your PC was a southerner and mine was a northerner and your character perceived it as an insult ICly.

:(

Do you call half-giants dire-men?

A nutter is someone who collects nuts.
Sorry, but you've not validated yourselves for using an incorrect word.

A farmer must be someone who collects farms

No, they farm. Nut as a verb means to gather or seek nuts.

So in fact, yes - a nutter is someone who nuts.
