That's quite generous: I typed in Davos for the Filipino city, scrambling it with the Swiss one, and it gave a tick for Davao!

:-/ but I wasn't able to come up with an acceptable type-in for Denpasar. I think I had a few vowels and consonants switched around. Also feel dumb for missing Darjeeling.

I thought it was "Taoism." I've always pronounced it with a "D" but spelled it with a "T." Got it right, just curious if I've been wrong or if there are two acceptable spellings. :D

I think Taoism is the most usual spelling, but it wouldn't fit a "letter D" quiz ;).

Never ever saw it spelled with a D, but apparently that works too. I just went "religion with a D, nope don't know that one, next question please".

I think 道教 is the common "spelling." :P Transliterations of words from languages that do not use the Roman alphabet are always tricky and often done in multiple different ways.

Especially as the characters kal referenced are pronounced differently across the many, many Chinese dialects. In Mandarin, the initial sound is closer to a T, but in Cantonese, it's better represented as a D.

@Plattitude, nah it's nothing to do with that. Mandarin has both "tao" and "dao" sounds. They're both pronounced exactly how you would expect them to. 道教 in modern pinyin is "daojiao". "Taoism" is based on the old "wades-giles" system of transliteration.

Sort of raising my hand. I knew if from MY office, not The Office, where many of my co-workers are consultants from India.

I'm guessing all Japanese politicians must be very healthy if they're on The Diet. *I'll just leave now*...
