Sunday Musings #66

That moment when you spell a word so wrong, even auto-correct is like, “I’ve got nothing man.”

– Anon


Actually, I find this happens quite a lot, as I write British English, and not American English. I am repeatedly being advised I have *spelt (and that’s one!) things incorrectly.

But the worst is when I have simply transposed two letters, Auto-correct offers wildly different suggestions that have nothing to do with the ever so slightly misspelt word!


*Above Auto-correct tells me spelt should be “slept”, “pelt” or “pelts”!

    The autocorrect on my iPad drives me crazy. I have to watch it like a hawk or it starts sending out the most appalling nonsense in replies to my blogging friends. (Rereads this comment very carefully)

    Haha πŸ˜‚ we all have thoughs moments, I sometimes write on my blog, it doesn’t look right so I change and it still doesn’t look correct, check out dictionary and comes up with American version, but British was what I first wrote, which then annoys me lol 😁

    I have an android phone, which means I have ‘swipe-ability’ and can drag my finger from letter to letter, which is much faster than those iphone folks. However, swiping can create some crazy combos in the spelling department.

    I know how you feel! The worst thing is that I’ve got so confused with spellings and rushed typing that my autocorrect is horrifically wrong!
