Spell Check

Spell check...it's a good thing.

This first one from Nashville's Metro 3 broadcast schedule for today.

And this one is from CM Pam Murray's (District 5-East Nashville) Detroit employer Sunshine Treatment Institute. They've spelled it correctly further down on that page, btw.

I can highly recommend a very popular homeschooling curriculum called "Spelling Power" if anyone absolutely doesn't want to enable spell check and wants to brush up on their skills.

Yep, their home page has the following:

We ask that you join us in making our visino a reality and a benefit to teh residents of Metro-DetroitBut, in full disclosure and interest of improvement, I'll point out yours (and you are usually an impeccable writer with impressive control over your words, but):

if anyone absolutely doesn't want to enable spell check and wants to brush up on their skills.The indefinite pronoun "anyone" is singular, so the pronoun that agrees with it should also be singular. "Their" should be "his" or "her" (or both).

Yikes, and I'll work on my tags. :P

Thanks--for both the compliment, the correction and the link to English Plus. I suspect I was in too much of a hurry.

Drat! Thought of two things to thank you for at first and then thought of the third but didn't change that 'both'. Arghhhh..,.
