 本帖最后由 黃河泉 于 2018-5-12 11:06 编辑 既然是在 Stata 专版，应该要有基本知识就是关于 Stata 的正确拼法是 "Stata"，不是 STATA/stata 等。底下为美国 Stata 论坛之叙述：18. What was that comment on Stata, not STATA, about? The correct spelling is “Stata”, please, not “STATA”. Several of the most active experts on the list can get a little irritated if you get that wrong, although you are free to regard them as pedantic. More importantly, if you write “STATA” you are making it obvious that you didn't read this guide carefully and to the end.复制代码全文可见：https://www.statalist.org/forums/help。 .custom_tag{background:none; padding-left:0;} .custom_tag a{text-decoration:none; margin-right:7px;} .custom_tag a:hover{text-decoration:underline;} .custom_tag i{display: inline-block;width: 60px;}

 请问为何是Stata而不是其他几种拼写呢?

 奇犽dsp 发表于 2018-5-12 12:40 请问为何是Stata而不是其他几种拼写呢?老实说，我也不知道。不知那连结有无说明？或我改天再问问看！

 奇犽dsp 发表于 2018-5-12 12:40 请问为何是Stata而不是其他几种拼写呢?Stata Journal 的 Editor，Nick Cox 提供说明如下：It's a copyrighted proprietary name. The company behind the product, now StataCorp LLC, uses the name Stata everywhere (*) in its documentation. Many program names started out as abbreviations, say in the 1950s and 1960s. SAS and SPSS and BASIC are examples that remain alive in some sense. Also, many software names originated before it was easy to use computers to show lower case (as I recall that did not become widely easy until about 1980).. So, FORTRAN is a contraction of FORmula TRANslation. MATLAB is a contraction of MATrix LABoratory and still the proprietary name used by its parent company, although people often write Matlab and my guess would be that if the program were being issued now, that would be the name. You might as well ask why do people write STATA at all? That's the real puzzle. 1. Ignorance, although that names the problem, and does not explain it. After all, many people believe lots of incorrect things despite logic and evidence. 2. Copying someone else who is ignorant. 3. Perhaps by analogy: people hear and read about SAS, SPSS, etc. and assume that Stata should be similarly spelled. (*) 4. The logo which looks like STaTa is perhaps confusing. (*) 5. Very early documentation (circa 1985) did use the all caps form. 6. You tell me.... NB: The opposite puzzle is why people write excel when the proprietary name is Excel.复制代码
