Subject: Re: Commonly misspelled words?
As we have WOTYs, perhaps we should also have Commonly Misspelled Words (Comiswords?)
I have just been asked to supply to someone on campus a list of commonly
misspelled words I have provided it's for its, their for there and there for
their. Can you assist?
(I have not taught English 101 recently.)
This is needed within 2 hours.
How about "haven't/havn't" and "arguement/argument"? I have problems
with these myself. Oh, yeah, and "definitely/definately". That one
always gets me too.
