"Quizas" is valid? Not according to ...
the RAE. I saw this word in a thread, spelled without the accent, quizas. I learned it as quizás and/or quizá, so I checked it with the dictionary here on Span¡shD!ct and lo and behold, quizas is said to be correct. However, according to the RAE, quizas without the accent won't fly. So, are both forms (spelling) acceptable, quizas and quizás ?
Yo jamás lo he visto sin la tilde. Dudo que sea aceptable.
Thanks for the PM, Quentin. Quizás is now corrected to the accented form. This word most certainly always has a tilde over the A.
I'll send a link to Paralee on this discussion and another error that we had earlier. Just letting you know so she doesn't get two dozen PM's.
The accented variant is correct. There are other words ending in as such as más that should carry an accent over the A as well, but they are being accepted without accents, even though it is techically incorrect.
This is similar to the degredation of the English language, but on a much smaller scale.
