* Averted in ''Goblin Moon'', where "fairy" is the name of the race, while "Fae" and "Farisee" are apparently two different ''nationalities'' within that race. (The Biblical overtones of the latter may be intentional, as some of TeresaEdgerton's nonhuman cultures are analogs to real-world human cultures.)

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', knights are "Ser" not "Sir". The ''VideoGame/DragonAge'' series, much influenced by ASOIAF, does the same thing.

Added DiffLines:

** Also "Wizzard", but that was an [[RougeAnglesOfSatin in-universe spelling error]] on Rincewind's part. It becomes a plot point in ''Discworld/InterestingTimes'' when Unseen University is instructed to send "a Great Wizzard" and because there's only one wizard who spells it like that, [[ButtMonkey they send him]]. (The use of a different spelling for differentiation actually kind of applies. Rincewind is not like most wizards. Mainly, [[IneptMage he can't do any actual wizardry]].)

* In addition to the above vampire/vampyre example, various words in the ''Darkangel Trilogy'' have odd spellings, [[spoiler: which may be justified as corruptions of the original language of the Ancient Ones]]. Squatty underground-dwellers are [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame duaroughs]], big black birds are rhuks, scaly creatures are [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dracgs]], and sweet pale-orange fruits are [[HowDoYouLikeThemApples apricoks]].

* ''Literature/AmericanGods'' includes a very brief walk-on by a "wampyr". Mostly, this is to evoke the Slavic folk roots of the creature, and not simply to say that NeilGaiman's [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampires Are Different.]] Which hardly needs saying. Neil Gaiman's everything is different, at least from the pop culture version.
