Me refiero a que se dice cerilla, y no cerillo. Bueno al menos en España.

De hecho, se dice "cerillo".

...y por cierto, "lighter" es "encendedor", no "mechero".

I've always heard "cerilla" instead of "cerillo. So, I've made a search about it and it said that "cerillo" is used in México and in And. (I haven't been able to find that abbreviation in the RAE, I guess it means Andalucía, but I never heard "cerillo" in Andalucía ).

Both "mechero" and "encendedor" appear in the RAE. In Spain we use more the word mechero than encendedor. Both of them are correct

@Irma: Ambas palabras se usan en México y no estoy segura de en qué otros lugares... pero el "se dice así y no asá" lo puse sólo por incordiar un poco.
Evidentemente, para todos nosotros, "lo correcto" es lo que nosotros hablamos.

No sé , no había oído cerillo jamás de los jamases, pero llevas razón Angelica, A veces pensamos que lo correcto es lo que nosotros decimos y estamos equivocados.
