Regime vs regimen

re·gime
/riˈZHēm/

Noun
  • A government, esp. an authoritarian one.
  • A system or planned way of doing things, esp. one imposed from above.


reg·i·men
/ˈrejəmən/

Noun
A prescribed course of medical treatment, way of life, or diet for the promotion or restoration of health.



Why is everyone saying regime???? i don't get it.. even the sticky is regime..
IT MAKES ME LAUGH EVERYTIME!!! bwahahahahaa

i get the definition of both, but all i can think about is Media broadcasting of regime's falling and attacking people.. yada yada

The definitions for "regime" are both valid from my point.

"The totalitarian regime has fallen" uses the first definition.
"This is a new diet regime I am following" uses the second definition.

Edit: It seems that "regime" when used in the medical sense is interchangeable with "regimen," according to Merriam-Webster.

The one that bugs me is "hobbiest".

It's hobbyist. Unless someone is actually trying to suggest they're more of a hobbyist than anyone else, in which case they should drop the "hobbier than thou" attidude.

Actually it would be someone that is more of a hobby, not more of a hobbyist. (hobby, hobbier, hobbiest, similar to funny, funnier, funniest).
