comment Why do people say “God” in English and not “Gosh”?
@AdamMosheh correct me if I'm wrong but it seems like you're saying: we don't vocalize HaShem as it's written (although al pi Kaballah we do say it), and many don't write out fully the English word G-d, therefore maybe we should also not say the English word G-d. What is the kesher between the issur of pronouncing YKVK and between not writing out any given name of HaShem in the first place? Aside from this, I will also say that many people do not say "G-d" in a casual context. I also don't see the basis to replace it with "gosh" - as far as I know, this is a gentile practice.

@mochinrechavim I use the Berditchever siddur - my question is more one of curiosity, as I find the variations in nusachos fascinating.

In terms of halacha, Lubavitchers adhere to the Shulchan Aruch HaRav, written by the Baal HaTanya. In terms of minhag, however, Chabad minhagim are codified in Sefer HaMinhagim, compiled about fifty years ago. The last Lubavitcher Rebbe z'l described it as clarifying which particular minhag was the practice of the Chabad community where the S"A gave multiple opinions.
