When you eat something delicious, do you say it was quite palletable? Some people do. They write of their palettes (a thing which supposedly is measuring and analyzing the tastes entering their mouths). I see it written this way fairly often.
Did they stick the artist tool in there?
Or could it just be BAD SPELLING?
Nope, no palettes in there.
From msn encarta online dictionary:
pal·ate [ pállət ] (plural pal·ates) noun Definition: 1. roof of mouth: the roof of the mouth, which separates it from the nasal cavity. It consists of a bony hard palate at the front and a muscular soft palate at the rear. 2. sense of taste: a personal sense of taste and flavor 3. aesthetic taste: intellectual or aesthetic tastes or sensibilities 4. botany part of flower: the lower projection of a flower such as the snapdragon, divided into two lips
palate, palette, or pallet? Do not confuse the spelling of palate, palette, and pallet, which sound similar. A palate is the roof of the mouth, or a personal sense of taste, as in the soft palate, dishes to please all palates. A palette or pallet is a board for an artist’s paints, or the colors available on a computer display. As well as meaning “an artist’s palette,” pallet also denotes a tray on which to stack loads, a board on which to dry ceramics, a tool with which to mix clay, or a straw-filled mattress.
