Spell check is grate. Their are those who argue that we’ve become dependent on it, butt eye am knot won of them. It remains hour own responsibility too go back and reed over what weave written. Inn fact, they’re have bin plenty of thymes that the spell checker caught mistakes I mite have otherwise mist.
That said, there exists a temptation four sum two let the spell check replace there own editing. Spell check itself isn’t bad, but giving into that temptation wood bee, so we cant fall pray to that trap. If I may be aloud, hear, to offer an anecdote from my personal experience as a fare but not fantastic speller, I think yule enjoy it. I meant to right the word “foreword” as in the note preceding the book, often written buy an other author. Instead I typed “foreward” and got the read squiggles of doom. Distracted and already working on the next sentence in my head, I looked back and remove the e, witch gave me “forward” as in the direction. Squiggles gone, I rote on.
Those homophones, they Shirley can gum up the works. Their my Maine enemy, the error most likely to trip me up, sew I no to keep an I out fore them. Awl I’m trying to say is, put the breaks on and go back over your work. Spell check helps, but it isn’t enough. I won’t blame it sense I believe it dose a lot of good; I just won’t trust it to edit by itself. That’s my job.
Oh, be fore I for get, sea if you can spot all fifty miss takes in here, mostly homophones, with no exact repeats, and none of which spell check would catch.
