I know this is a stupid question, but what is the proper term......Rotortilling or Rototilling?

Want to do a bit for people on the side, but don't want to sound like a dummy.......:bash:

Rototilling is the correct term, I think. Though I doubt people will make a big deal if you used the other spelling.
Often times regional dialects play into the mix. Where I grew up(South Central Iowa) people often get an R in the mix where none existed.
I grew up around Newton, Iowa home of the Matag Company for over 100 yrs. People came in from SE Iowa and many states south to work in the factory. The simple word Wash was so commonly pronounced Warsh in the area, that Maytag Stamped out aluminum washers stamped ORIGINAL MAYTAG WARSHER as souvineers to give to guests.
