I can never comment on your journal at work - for some reason it comes up as a 'Message Board and Forum' which are banned, unlike the rest of LJ (except steer's journal which does the same) which is fine.

This is annoying as your posts often make me want to say something!

Neither of the first two because they have established meanings not relating to cookbooks. Most of them, I don't think a reader would be able to work out the meaning easily; and I avoided "cookbookery" because I have encountered it used facetiously in connection with accountancy (sorry, m31andy!)

So I went for the nerd option.

Surely the correct word for "creative accounting" is bookcookery, not my coinage cookbookery.

I'll admit that cookbookery is the name of an on-line cookbook store (http://www.thecookbookery.com/), but in a case of independent coining it is used by others in basically the right way (http://www.babyrambutan.net/category/cookbookery/).

ricettariale and receptarial are really the same word; the first is merely the italianization of the second. Printperson and I came to them wholly independently, and I offered mine without noticing (or maybe having forgotten) pp's submission. I would recommend that you unite the two percentages on your poll, but since you permitted multiple votes that may not be fair. But what's fairness in light of CORRECTNESS not to mention DESIRE TO WIN?
