It’s a draw: drawer vs. draw

Filed under: Spellbound,Word wars — mighty red pen @ 7:14 pm

This little tidbit was spotted on the community classifieds  board at my local supermarket. If you’re looking for a three-drawer bureau, you’re out of luck. But if you need a bureau with 3 draws, this might be just right for you:

Oddly enough, this bureau actually seems to have way more than 3 draws. Does that make it multi-drawed? Bonus.


  1. So, are the people who post here drawn to dialectical differences, or do they merely think dialects should be a major drawer around here?

  2. I haven’t lived in Boston in nearly 30 years, but I still can’t pronounce the -ER in “drawer.” I simply cannot get that last syllable out.
