But maybe this was totally a coincidence. Maybe another member got a province that played that role and that just happened at the same time with my gaining the province with the clan mark. However I guess that the adjacent provinces bonus points changed things on the map.  Wink  Cool

Yes, that happened just after I got the province where you had the clan mark on that day. I had 5 victories and 1 loss, but the points I got gave us the province. I presume that gaining this province suddenly boosted our total provinces' number  because of the extra points a clan gets by having adjacent provinces. So the extra points we got by this adjacent provinces term, gave us the first potition for a while.  Wink

Both pronunciations are correct, even though I believe that the one with the "k" is the most proper according to my English teacher (who, by the way, comes from Manchester). I presume that the "s" pronounced is mostly used in USA and by English language speakers all over the world as it suits better to the written form of the word and sounds more ample. You know, easy to digest!  Very Happy  Wink I personally prefer the old-speaking accent, so I vote for "k".  Laughing And this term has a Greek root also.  Cool



The pronunciation of the initial ‹c› in the English words Celt and Celtic in their various meanings can be realised either as /k/ or /s/ (that is, either hard or soft). Both can be justified philologically and both are "correct" in English prescriptive usage.[8]

Although the word originated in an early Continental Celtic language, it came to English via Greek (Keltoi), where it is spelled with a kappa; thus /k/ is the original pronunciation. This was borrowed into Latin (Celtae), where it was likewise pronounced with /k/. However in the transition from Classical Latin to Vulgar Latin and early Romance, this sound shifted to /t?/, a process known as palatalisation, and in French further to /s/. Under French influence, the practice ‹c› representing /s/, when used before the vowels "i" and "e," in words of Latin origin became established in English, as for example celestial, cilia, and Cicero. Thus /s/ is the inherited pronunciation in English for these words. This sound change has resulted in a general orthographic convention of English, ‹c› usually represents /s/ before front vowels (‹i e y›). For additional discussion see Latin spelling and pronunciation.

Until the mid-twentieth century, Celtic was usually pronounced with /s/ in English except by academics, but the pronunciation with /k/ has been gaining ground recently. Following the usage of philologists, /k/ is now almost invariably used with reference to Celtic culture even in non-academic contexts.[9] However, the /s/ pronunciation remains the most recognised form when it occurs in the names of sports teams, most notably Celtic Football Club and the Boston Celtics basketball team.

The corresponding words in French are pronounced with /s/ while those in German have /k/ (and are even spelled with ‹k›), but neither French nor German has influenced English usage[citation needed]; rather, they show independent reflexes of the same phenomena in Latin and Greek.

The celt, a stone tool, has a completely separate etymology from Celt and Celtic. In English its sole pronunciation is /?s?lt/."

I 've also noticed that CA doesn't have a Facebook account. I had it in my mind to propose on making one. It is fast and easy to create a Facebook page. All members, old and new may join the page, discuss things, leave opinions about Total War and of course recruit new members.
Soulfly, Nighthawk, think of it!!
