1. disc n
a flat, thin, round object

2. disk
n variant spelling in the US and in computing contexts of disc.

(In British English, a disc is anything that's flat and round e.g. a frisbee or a saucer. A disk is a floppy disk. BUT, in A,erican English, there is no such world as "disc." They use "disk" for anything that's flat and round and also for floppy disks.

No, you're wrong, ''disc'' does exist. A ''disc'' is a CD or DVD while a disk is a floppy disk.

As you were wrong with coffin/casket, you're also wrong about "disc" not existing in AmE.

Yes, I can move my tentacles about to grab food but I haven't been able to actually move around since I was a kid. I live on the Great Barrier Reef ... I suppose you could say that I'm actually part of the reef.

This is funny. But I think mollusque is a good spelling.
