Spell Check Might Miss These!
is a language in which I often dabble. Blame it on my brain or
fingers, but I just cant' keep from making mistakes. Misspelling words
is not the same as making a typo, however, because I meant to type it
wrongly. I just didn't know it was wrong. To you avoid purposefully
typing the wrong word, here's a list of common spelling mistakes:
Their- Their shoes There- Over there They're- They are Lose- To lose your wallet Loose- my pants are loose Your- It's your turn You're - You are It's- It is Its- Its color (possessive pronouns don't have apostrophes) Effect- It had a side-effect (noun) Affect- It affected me (verb) Whether- Whether or not Weather- Today's weather is rainy Alot- Is not a word (allot is- apportionment) A lot - There's a lot of those (two words) Then- Then we went home (Used for time) Than- Bigger than that (comparison)
Finally, even though the rule says "i before e, except after c unless
it is 'a" as in weigh," there are exceptions and that may be WEIRD,
but it's the case.
I'm by no means a grammar nut, so if you
misspell when writing to me, I will simply read your meaning and love
you just the same. :)
