Hah, this one has plagued me for years. Not anything serious but it’s bugged me every time I have write something in past tense. For instance, “I miced the stage.” That just looks weird.
So, today I finally did a search on mic versus mike and I found this great article from Sam Bayer:
A little heavy on the academic side if you’re not into that but it’s a great detailed explanation of his vote for mike. I have to agree with most everything Sam says. So, I guess to save my sanity when usine mike as a verb I’ll be using m-i-k-e. 🙂
