Nika's Guide to Spelling - Volume 1

Postby Nikachelle » Fri Jul 16, 2010 10:52 am

This has been driving me bat shit crazy lately on these boards and it's only in the last month or so that it's picked up pace.

WEIRD

The word is spelled "weird" not "wierd" like everyone seems to think.

Current culprits:

Korola: http://maintankadin.failsafedesign.com/ ... ic#p577131

High School Junior year English teacher had a lesson titled "Mistakes From Hell" stressing those. Had him again my senior year, it was now "Mistakes From Heck" =(

Perhaps you can do one on why I always read uninformed as uniformed.
