    aidiz

    Do you recognize the word by this pronuntiation?

    It is supposed to be plural.

    Re: aidiz

    Are you suggesting that it's an English word written phonetically? I would read what you wrote as "eye-dizz". That doesn't sound like any English word I can think of. The closest word I can think of is "ideas" but the 'pronunciation' given is wrong for that word.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: aidiz

    Yes, it is a word I heard in the radio. An English one.

    Re: aidiz

    Could it be "audits"?

    Were they talking about business or taxes?

    Re: aidiz

    It sounds like ID's. ID is short for identification document (as a noun) and identify or inspect identification document (as a verb). With an S, it's either a plural noun or singular verb.

    Noun:
    Did she have her ID with her?


    Plural noun:
    Did they have their ID's with them?

    Verb for identify:
    They IDed him the minute he walked in the door.

    Verb referring to inspection of a document:
    I got IDed at five bars last night.
    He ID's strangers before he lets them through the gate.

    This is an American expression. I don't know whether it's used in other countries.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Re: aidiz

    Surely there must have been some context. I'm sure you didn't simply hear one word on the radio, in isolation. What were they talking about generally?

    Re: aidiz

    Sorry pals. Neither "audits" nor "ID´s". And I'm afraid that the context is too vague.

    Re: aidiz

    Well, then, you won't get an answer here, I'm afraid! And if the context was so vague, how do you know that neither "audits" nor "IDs" is correct?

    I know for sure it was neither "audits" nor "IDs".

    What about "aidis"?

    Re: aidiz

    That is not an English word either. Nor is it the pronunciation of any English word I know.
