There won’t be too many text posts here, but since people are truly getting up in arms about the spelling used on the Darkthrone-themed eCard, I have come to the conclusion that I need to set things straight. ;)
"Transilvanian" is not spelled incorrectly. The Darkthrone album is called "Transilvanian Hunger". The "i" is there. According to Wikipedia:
“Transylvania (Romanian: Ardeal pronounced [arˈde̯al] or Transilvania pronounced [transilˈvani.a]; Hungarian: Erdély; German: Siebenbürgen (help·info), see also other denominations) is a historical region in the central part of Romania. Bounded on the east and south by theCarpathian mountain range, historical Transylvania extended in the west to the Apuseni Mountains; however, the term sometimes encompasses not only Transylvania proper, but also the historical regions of Crişana, Maramureş, and Romanian part of Banat.”
So there you have it.
