Accepting "pashto", why not "pashtu" as well?

I'd agree with that. There could be some reason why it's not right though.
Level 59
Nov 13, 2017
The main reason is that Pashto and Pashtu relate to the language, not to the people.

Surprised had to add the g to the Beijing answer. Without the g is also an old English spelling of the city.

I had this conversation or variations in the Arab world many times:

I've been to Alexandria.

You mean Al Iskandria?

No.. I mean Alexandria.

But the name in Arabic is Iskandria

Yeah that's because they got confused and warped the first part of the name of the city into an article. It would be like if I went home and told eveyone I had been to "the mama" (there's a popular area of the desert near Riyadh called "thumamah")

There’s a typo in the second question. It says “erupted 1991”, but I’m pretty sure there’s supposed to be an “in” in between.

Unfortunately the 'Golden Nitpick Award' for Nov. 2017 has already been awarded, but I think 'Insaniot' really deserves a special award so....... A 'Diamond Nitpick Award' is now given to Insaniot....... Congratulations.

By the way 'Insaniot' you should have typed ...."It reads erupted 1991" not "It says erupted 1991".

It's not nitpicking, it's basic English.

Peiping is a former English spelling of Beijing.
Level 79

It's the romanised spelling of 'Beiping', which was the city's name from 1928 to 1937, and 1945 to 1949.
