...should be considered a real word on Firefox.
did I miss something?
Not that I know of.
random rant... shot, simple...... I disagree though. Bokeh is Japanese, if firefox used every language out there, we'd never see words with errors, the world is too diverse.
Yeah, it was just a tiny little rant.
You have a point-- but most dictionaries use it, and dictionaries don't have every Japanese word either.
Kindergarten works so why should a Japanese word that has been incorporated into common English not?
"Bokeh" is hardly a common word - in fact I would consider it highly technical. Even half the people on this forum don't know what it means, but I can guarantee you that my mom knows "Kindergarten."
I recall read in Shutterbug that boken is an American spelling and not the Japanese western style alphabet spelling
Firefox or Thunderbird?
LOL, "boken" is what happens when my three year old throws a toy and it ends up in two or more pieces. :greenpbl:
the original Japanese spelling (well it's symbols, but in roomaji or roman lettering to sound out symbols) it's "boke" pronounced bow-keh (almost like kay but with a short e)
For those who did not know!
Bokeh (from the Japanese boke ぼけ, "blur") is a photographic term referring to distorted out-of-focus areas in an image produced by a camera lens. Different lens bokeh produces different aesthetic qualities in out-of-focus backgrounds, which are often used to reduce distractions and emphasize the primary subject.
