Are there any words you often misspell? Put them on here to remind you next time - with comments or tips if you wish. Just make sure you put the CORRECT version on here! I'll start it off:-
ALL correct, although the "T" ending is rarely used outside the UK.
ALL correct: two Rs and two Ss.
forward (as in going)
I should like to point out that most of the spelling mistakes in my posts are not mine but the keyboards
NB "government" is normally singular, as it operates as a single unit.
So it's "The government [u]SITS[/u] late tonight to get through [u]ITS[/u] backlog."
NB a millennium is 10 x 10 x 10. So the word has 10 letters.
NB Only use the latter if referring to the broomstick-riding type.
I see you`ve already done embarrassed.
God what a fool i feel.
It was out of place, alphabetically - my fault!
NB "Levadopa" is incorrect.
The latter refers to writing materials.
Ali j kood due wiv sum spelin tipps wile weer on the subdyect.
Ali's way of writing is unique and charming. We'd be worried if she wrote any differently.
Carry on Ali ! We love it
Are you Ali's teacher, Christo? I'm sure she could find fault in you, too, but she doesn't - she's above all that.
I was only joking. It certainly wasn't my intention to cause offence.
Please accept my sincere apologies Ali j.
Ok, I'm sorry too.
It's just that she's taken a lot of stick about it in the past.
Apostrophes are important too!
It's "It is" (Contraction)
Its "Belonging to it" (Possessive pronoun)
.Definitely - It's DEFINITELY "Definitely", Lorna!
The problem is that the spell checker does not distinguish homophones. Words that sound the same but have different meanings.
MOST spell checkers are American English based, because the associated sofware (e.g. for a forum) was written there. For example, UK English has LICENCE (noun) and LICENSE (verb), whereas in the USA they use LICENSE to cover both meanings. Thus many spell checkers will (incorrectly, if you're in the UK) reject LICENCE as invalid.
Councillor - member of a council, e.g. town council, county council.
Counsellor - someone who counsels; a provider of counselling services.
tip for licence vs license : the one with the s is busier
Also works for practice & practise
So how does busier lead us to verb?
