Narcist or Narcissist

Some grammar rules (and embarrassing mistakes!) transcend the uniqueness of different regions and style guides.

Narcist or Narcissist

Post by Sophie Gabriel »

Is this grammar correct? "The mix of hatred, book and street smartness, comradice, a psychotic narcist who writes about his murders..." My focus being, 'a psychotic narcist'. Or does it have to be 'a psychotic narcissist'?

Narcissist is correct, the other is not.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.

The correct form is narcissist, while narcist should be considered a spelling mistake on the author's behalf.
