Oh no, you’re thinking. He’s on again about spelling in online communications.
Well, no, not exactly.
Jody Gilbert over at ZDNet UK has posted a top 10 of obvious and yet all-too-common grammar mistakes and how to avoid them.
Some of these drive me absolutely batty (“lose” vs. “loose”, “its” vs. “it’s”) but also point up one or two that I have trouble with (“lie” vs. “lay”).
Odd that “to” vs. “too” vs. “two” wasn’t included. “Definately” is another that drives me over the edge, but since it would be caught by a spell-checker it doesn’t count for this list.
I suggest you go read it. Don’t make me get all Webster on your ass.
