Rendezvous as one continuous word is incorrect.

Re: Rendezvous or Rendez-vous

But I believe in anglo-saxon one could say;

Some people had rendezvoused at the rendezvous already, whilst others were still in the process of rendezvousing at the rendezvous.

If you like that sentence then you know what to use.Big Smile [:D]

PPP is right. It should be rendez-vous.

I challenge you to say it in Anglo-Saxon, Pachapapa.

IMHO the difference is that rendezvous is English and rendez-vous is French.

RDV is quicker to type, universally understood and avoids the problem.

Errr... sorry if I appear picky and pedantic, but rendez-vous is French, whichever way you put it... rendezvous might be an anglicised version, but it is still French!Stick out tongue [:P]
