BREAKS COOKING : COOKING
HOLIDAY OR COOKING VACATION?
seems to be an ongoing argument this one - should we refer
to a Cooking Holiday as a cooking holiday or a cooking vacation?
From the various opinions I have gathered over the last eighteen
months it would seem that it is only the UK that uses the
term holiday in this context.
from the UK it would seem that for the rest of the world a
holiday is a special day like Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter,
etc - although just to confuse the issue we would also refer
to these days as holidays (which is where the word originates:
debate about the correct meaning of these words would probably
not have arisen before the advent of the internet. The internet
is responsible for a lot all ready but one area I have not
seen much discussion on is how it is changing the written
word and word usage. Word usage is important to any business
that has a web site because it is relevant words on the web
page that will bring visitors to the web site via search engines
if I want to promote "Cooking Holidays" outside
the UK I must use the phrase "Cooking Vacations"
but this then leaves me with a conundrum. If my web pages
refer to "Cooking Vacations" then no-one in the
UK is going to find my pages . . .
