I wonder how many people actually click on the words with ........ dotted red underlines?

While it may be "Spell-check" it's not "homonym-check"!
  • to = "toward"
  • too = "also"
  • two = "2"

I am having a few keys on my laptop sticking which makes for some interesting sentences at times if I don't double check.

Some browsers have native spellcheckers, others don't and so we just try to muddle along. I think "spellchecK" is ungracefully named btw as usually it's checking for typos. Typocheck might be better

Not to mention abbreviations. Et cetera is etc not ect. Probably the most misspelled abbreviation ever. I've had several friends and students argue with me until I have them look it up.

The one that gets me is "the car careened down the hill". In fact, it "careered" down the hill. But, the word "careen" is now so prevalent in media of all kinds, that even the dictionary accepts careen for career.
To careen, BTW is to lean over ( it's what a sailing ship does ). To career is to swing from side to side.

I know that a person should never make a career out of a career. Could be fatal.

My pet peeve with improper use of words is seeing 'loose' used instead of 'lose', and I see it a lot. It makes me loose my cool.

Speaking of 'a lot', it is not 'alot' either as many use, though 'allot' is a word.

BTW, I blame my mother, she was always correcting me.

I don't care. As long as all molded trailer owners are here, willing to share and are nice. Too many other things in life to worry about...

Right. Let's talk about weight distribution hitches, aerodynamics and towing with an under-rated vehicle. And then, let's talk about weight distribution hitches, aerodynamics and towing with an under-rated vehicle...

Weight distributing hitches.

As for that hyphen that somehow materialized in "underrated"...

P.S.

I went to Catholic school....Nobody was tougher than Sister Mary Agnes of The Cross, aka The Grammar Nazi!

Nobody ever accused a photographer of being able to spell.
