Is it Ketchup or Catsup?
Is it spelled Ketchup or Catsup? And if it is Catsup, do we pronounce it the way it is spelled?
Got to know.
Either is correct, although catsup is considered a variant of ketchup by many dictionaries. Pronunciation varies as well, as The American Heritage Dictionary notes:
ketch·up (kĕchəp, kăch-) also catch·up (kăchəp, kĕch-) or cat·sup (kătsəp, kăchəp, kĕch-)
