Oh Those Spelling Errors

Please make it stop.

affect, effect
to, too
buy, by, bye


Oh those spelling errors woes. I am here to confess my sin. Oh the shame. I just typed complement, when I meant compliment.

Talk about Grrrrrrrrrr moments. Don't you hate those pesky little words that sound alike, but have different meanings and spellings.

compliment and complement.

compliment - an expression of praise or admiration
complement - something that completes or makes perfect

I hate homophones.

I due oh how I due, I mean I do hate homphones.LOL

I'm not sure how many times I've said, Please bare with us. I do believe that it's, please bear with us.

Many of my grammatical errors are the result of homophones. Like Sense vs since.


Sense - meaning feel
Since- refers to passage of time

I need to slap myself or is that I need too slap myself. Quick, I need a refresher lesson on the basics of homophones.

My next blog entry - Where do I stick that comma?

Ammiss ok that’s it, I’m changing my name. You’ve called me Rows and the copper calls me Ross. Oh spelling woes. Didn’t I have a blog post somewhere on the worst typos ever? Butterfly kisses I think I need a lesson in spelling from you. After all you are the one, with 95 % in English. LOL Steve, no my friend, you are the man who dislikes using punctuation.

Do you really want to know were you can stick that comma, Rosie?

J/K : P

I do agree though between the variations of the English language it must certainly be confusing to others with a native tongue!
