Every time I get to type ‘cellphone’ I don’t know which version of the word I should use. Should I type ‘cell phone’ to avoid the red squiggly line or should I just add ‘cellphone’ to my computer’s dictionary and use that instead?
A simple google search on both words shows that both versions are used. So does it come down in the end as a matter of preference or is one ‘more correct’ than the other according to English in general?
Personally, I feel more comfortable typing ‘cellphone’. I mean, why use ‘cell phone’ if ‘cell’ is an abbreviation to ‘cellular’? So if someone typed ‘cell phone’ it would still be wrong despite the fact that the word processor didn’t mark it as misspelled because it should be ‘cellular phone’ instead.
Someone please help me find an answer so that I can put this dilemma to rest once and for all.
