I’m working on yet another fairy voice project. It seems fae-folk are my forte lately. Totally cool, but I do have one puzzling question:
Is it FAIRY… FAERY… or FAERIE?
I found some information online. Some people say that “fairies” are totally different creatures from “faery/faeries.” Others say “faery/faerie” is the Middle-English/Old-French spelling, and that today’s spelling is “fairy.”
What spelling do you think is correct and why?
