Bisque Vs. Biscuit

31 July 2010 - 10:36 AM

I am about midway through A Potter's Book Bernard Leach for literary entertainment and for the first time have seen biscuit printed and just figured it was the proper English version of bisque past tense verb which I have often written and say out loud multiple times a week -- ie: It will be bisqued tomorrow/This piece has been bisqued. Guess spell check isn't wrong afterward.

The dictionary uses biscuit as a noun but never a word, so is bisque used as a past tense verb not correct?

My vocabulary is something I am working on over all but was never my strongest suit in school.

It did not even occur to me that biscuit was correct until I saw Micheal Kiln use it on his blog.....

Micheal, I would love some educating today. We really should say Biscuit as in bis-kit the bread in referring to clay that has been fired? It sounds so weird rolling off my tongue that I might just stick with bisque ware.

Thanks!
