    Collectability or Collectibility

    Ok, in putting together the 4e Teaser document, I came across this word several times.

    Neither version exists in dictionary.com.

    Either is arguably correct.

    Which do you prefer?

    To further complicate matters, "collectable/collectible" are both correct according to Dictionary.com.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/collectable

    *bites nails*

    This one could go either way, folks!!!!

    If you do a google search on both Collectibility gets 2,340,000 while Collectability only gets 593,000.

    I'd look at other words with the same ending:

    Operability, manageability, etc.

    Collectability. In this 'ere neck o' the woods, at any rate.

    And - oh cool! Did I save the world?!

    Also - nice job on the teaser.

    The former. As Robberbaron said, other words of the same type use an "a" rather than an "i".

    Invisibility.
    Oper+ability = ablity to be operated
    manage+ability = ablity to be managed
    Collect+ability = ablity to be collected

    Invisibility = in+visibility = not visible.

    Visible + ability = ability to be visible

    Visiblability?

    Never seen "collectable" before in my life. Collectibility it is, for me.
