This page is for Researchers who need to know how to spell a word/s (and grammar, if required) for a Guide Entry, or for any other reason. (Although spelling is not that important in conversation threads)
5 most often Misspelt Words
Homophones are words which sound the same, but have different meanings, such as: their/there/they're and your/you're.
Some people think correct Punctuation and use of apostrophes is not necessary, however it can completely change what you are saying. Take this example from an English professor who wrote the words 'Woman without her man is nothing' and asked his students to punctuate it;
The men wrote: Woman, without her man, is nothing.
The women wrote: Woman: Without her, man is nothing.
Update March 2008: Some of the volunteer spell checkers appear to have left the site (Elvised) since Spell Checker was created. The Researchers with next to their name are still around and subscribed to this page. However, some of those are involved in other activities on hootoo and their time may be limited.
