Spelling Question - Just ‘Bee’ cause
Until this morning, I thought 'vilify' had two ll's.
Which started me pondering...how important is correct spelling when it comes to writing?
I've seen a meme come across my FB feed once or twice where some of the vowels/consonants are replaced with other letters. The picture, if you can read and understand it, makes the point that our brains can identify words correctly (and thus be able to communicate adequately) even when some of the letters are different than the standard dictionary spelling.
--Does it bother YOU when you see misspelled words in things you read?
--Is correct spelling only important in some contexts and not others?
--Do you try to improve your spelling abilities?
--How does it make you feel when someone corrects your writing (hopefully charitably)?
These letters that we mix around
to fashion words which foster sound?
Well-ordered need or merely close?
Which leads to understanding most?
Do you get miffed when (more or less)
mistakes abound? Does grammar stress
arrive, until you feel compelled
to correct those who have misspelled?
Your thoughts I'll not treat spurious.
Please share below. I'm curious.
