Jump to: navigation, search

As a verb havocking and havocked maybe like panicking and trafficking, am I right? Ferike333 21:55, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

on raw books.google.com hits, havocing gets 27 results and havocking 601 so it looks at first glance that you might be right. Thryduulf (talk) 09:37, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. It's the usual conjugation of verbs ending in c, though very few know about it. To me havocing would be pronounced like /hævəsɪŋ/, which is obviously incorrect. Plus the alternative spelling must somehow be related to it, which also suggests the correction was alright. However Webster's Dictionary doesn't contain the verbal meaning of the word at all. I wonder where else I could look it up. Ferike333 11:25, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
