Did we finally lose the grammar war?
by Markus Brinsa
Apparently, we lost the grammar war and call on-premises mistakenly "on-premise".
This is really bad because premise and premises are different words and they mean different things.
- premise: something assumed or taken for granted
- premises: a tract of land with the building thereon, or a building or part of a building
If you are saying "I like the solution on premise", what you are saying is "I like the idea of the software".
If you state "I like the software on premises", you are saying "I like the software in my building / on my server".
"I like the software on premises on premise."
