I have a question for the speakers of French. I’m writing a small paper on gay rights in France, and when I read about it I notice that some words are spelled differently depending on the writer:
* gay/gays or gai/gaies?
* pacs, Pacs, PaCS or PACS?
I understand if there is no rule (yet) for these words but I think I have to choose one spelling for each for the paper, so which alternatives are most common?
