A simple spelling primer

Filed under: Education,Tutorials — wholeshebang @ 5:55 am

The post “Grammar Mistakes“, on a blog I’ve been reading, is supposed to be a rant, but actually it’s a good primer of common mispellings of homonymns (words that sound alike).

Will be most useful to those who are horrible spellers, though even good spellers make the same mistakes as typos (i.e., they know how to spell which one but often don’t realize they’ve mistyped it).

Recommendation: Open a website in your text-editor and use the “Search” or “Find” feature to find all instances of one of these words. Did you use the correct word, or did you mean to use its homonymn?
