Spelling struggles

Posted by – March 19, 2010

I just went through my old posts changing instances of “particularily” to “particularly”. I don’t think I’ve ever spelled that word correctly. A while ago I had to do the same with “mathemathics”, I still catch myself making that mistake all the time. I also used to write “pronounciation” and… God, the shame, I can’t go on anymore (now my stupid spell checker tells me there’s no such word, but I just don’t care). It’s like someone suddenly telling you that “apple” should be spelled “appel”. The brain doesn’t accept it right away. So please alert me to any relapses.

    Too bad there were no red lines for your missing capitals, incorrect use of “a,” comma-splice, adjective used as adverb, or missing period. Alas, Steve Jobs has work to do.

    Now now :)

    Spell checker functionality has actually spread beyond Apple, that hotbed of technological innovation, but for reasons of misguided pride I seldom turn it on intentionally.
