David Kanigan: Inspiration, Ideas & Information
Adapted from teachingliteracy
You will now be lurking in my subconscious each time I hit “publish.” Nice.
Not me – just checking your spelling.
You are checking “MY” spelling. Wow.
(giggling) I’m not!
You are too!
My rule is that emails don’t count. But maybe we should add blogs to that. On the other hand, if anything goes with blogs, it would soon be unpleasant to read them. Guess we could allow for a few typos. Hope so anyway, as I’m guilty of lots of those.
Anneli, I do believe emails count in working world. I scold my children (now adults) that texting slang and acronyms won’t work…
Did U purposely misspell my name 2 make that point. Ouch! (Anne li). Yes, spelling is important, even in emails (and in comment replies). May B we can allow 4 accidental typos in personal emails. I don’t go 4 a lot of texting slang. There’s no shortage of space here.
Laughing. Freudian slip that has since been repaired. When are we going to see a post on your name? Its origin, etc. Would make for great reading.
It’s a sickness…
Oh no. Not you too!
LOL!! I can’t help it, David!! I’m a professional proofreader!!
You too Joyce? I’m like deer in headlights on oncoming car. Paralyzed.
No I’m not.
Well then, thank you. Because based on all the comments above, you stand alone.
I love this post! I know my grammar is not the best, and I can worry about being judged. I get confused with some grammar rules and definitely struggle with commas.
Hahaha nice one!
Nope — I believe the spirit of the law often outweighs the letter. Expressiveness and understanding are far more important than a perfectly constructed, but empty, sentence.
Thank goodness. I can always count on Sandy to give me Another Lovely Day (or pass)
No, I’m actually checking the formatting…
Now that’s funny. And so not surprising. Hilarious.
He he he who will correct mine
Oh, no worries. Grammar police are everywhere, and watching.
Mimi’s got the spelling – Todd’s on formatting – I’ve got punctuation covered.
We’re all actually on your side through all this
I’m surrounded!!! My head feels like it is being squeezed between a vice!
I’m not. I hear it’s been proven that when sending emails and text messages with spelling errors you see the correct spelling when reading them.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Laughing. Really, now?
I received this email and thought you may like it.
I don’t know if this proves anything medical but it sure proves how amazing God made our minds! Wow! I’ve seen this with the letters out of order, but this is the first time I’ve seen it with numbers . Good example of a Brain Study: If you can read this OUT LOUD you have a strong mind. And better than that: Alzheimer’s is a long, long, ways down the road before it ever gets anywhere near you.

If you can read the following paragraph, forward it on to your friends and the person that sent it to you with ‘yes’ in the subject line. Only great minds can read this. This is weird, but interesting! If you can raed this, you have a sgtrane mnid, too.
Can you raed this? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can. I cdnuolt blveiee that I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno’t mtaetr in what oerdr the ltteres in a word are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is that the frsit and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. This is bcuseaethe huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! If you can raed this forwrad it.
