Mi teature sez I must corekt mi sbellin me selv
But wot do yew do?

How two sbell it?
An yew karn’t fynd it in the Dicshenery.

And yor Sbell Chequer

Or wen yu lefed Klick on yor,
Conpewter an it sez
-No sbelling sujestuns
Sew yew klick -luck it up
And it sez -knot in the Dicshenery.

Itz a consprisee!

You will find something in conjunction with the internet in: "Understanding Media".
Have a look on my blog! I commented your comment with a small excerpt from this book.

Death I must get that canary.

Castor I'm doing an essay on ICT at the moment so I might be able to pull a useful quote from it

Eating poetry I really can't spell so this is a problem but it does occasionally produce funny results like the time I spelt yellow with two ii instead of ll and the spell checher didn't even coe up with a word beginnig with y and I couldn't tell what was wrong with it

xfreakx I love the word prolly perhaps we could come up with a totally new language.

Nessa glad I made you laugh

It is me to a T thank goodness for spellchecker flawed though it is

Being Mixed Afro-Arab I always have problem with my spelling. So this had really made me at ease with my problem and Im in fuss if I have no comuter to write... Is it acceptable to write as the way you can hear the words. It would be a relief...Im a mess in spelling as you know by now

MB it is a serious problem but often leads to funny mistakes thank-goodness for computers

CJ most of my family are the same as me so there's no one to conplain about it

Nasra you spell any way you want on my site there's power in numbers. The Elizabethans didn't worry about it or punctuation so spelling's a fairly modern concept which is why many people's brains haven't got to grips with it yet.
