    "Magazin" is not an English word.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Specialist/specialized?

    PS I wonder what the difference is this time. A specialist shop specializes in something. It would be rare, in this context, to use 'speicalized', unless it was a question of degree; 'Shop A is more specialized than shop B'. (I'm assuming by magazin you mean 'shop'.)

    Etymological digression: I'm guessing about 'shop', because an Arabic root (meaning 'shed') set off two lines of descent, starting with almacén in Spain [the al- was just the definite article, as the Berbers who invaded Spain didn't have Arabic as a first language], and magazzino in Italian (Old It., I guess, as it doesn't strike me as current. But I know little about Italian). Whatever it did in Italy, it survived long enough to give the French magasin.
