Question I.E. the Merfolk
So, I replayed Tales of Monkey Island recently, and I noticed that there does not seem to be a consistent spelling of the merfolks' species/cultural name (I played with the subtitles on), which was rather confusing to me. Meanwhile, the majority of online spaces (including the Monkey Island wiki) seem to have chosen "Vaycaylian" as the 'official' spelling, but I'm not sure whether or not this is accurate. If anyone could help me answer this question I would really appreciate it (also my apologies if this has been asked before)

Hm I never noticed this. How is it spelled in the subtitles?
It varies to be honest. Some of the spellings I've found include Vacalian, Vacaylian, Vaycalian, and Vaycaylian. And as far as I can tell this does not effect how characters pronounce the word since they all seem to pronounce it the same way. So you can see my confusion with wanting to know which is the correct spelling.
