I seem to remember a thread here earlier on about misspelling and the lack of capital letters where they should, indeed, be used.
As a direct result of the corrupting influence (penny-pinching?) of text messages, I suppose we shouldnīt be too surprised; disappointed yes, but surprised, no.
Spelling has always been somewhat problematic for me; as time marches relentlessly on, I find myself with ever more shibboleths, not because my personal dictionary has expanded - far from it - but because I am becoming ever more prone to repeating the same mistakes. To compound matters further, I have developed what can only be described as dyslexic fingers which might, or might not, be the product of failing eyesight. Have to say, thank goodness I no longer have to use that portable Olivetti!
It seems to me that there is an ever increasing danger of misunderstandings arising through poor spelling skills than at any time since the quill first scratched parchment. Letīs hope our political masters all become better educated before itīs too late!
