You all need to check your spelling for mistakes. Bet you are happy that you have a spell checker.
Here is the description again written completely wrong.
Ewe awl ned too cheque hour spilling fir miss takes, bit ewe area hippy hat ewe half a spill chequer.
When it comes to writing things it is important to always keep an eye on the way you are spelling things. One good way to do this is to use a spell checker. What could be simpler than pressing a button to check that you have spelt everything correctly? But there is a problem with most spell checkers, they only check the spelling of each individual word, so what you have written may be a word spelt right but it is the wrong word entirely. It could be the case of an extra letter in a word, or maybe a letter missing. Perhaps it is just that while typing you may accidentally have hit the wrong letter. Shame that a spell checker will not have picked up on it.
Ok why don’t we have a look at the second sentence of the above paragraph;
And one good way to do this is to use a spell checker.
That makes complete sense, but does the following?
Any won hood weigh too do thin is two used spill chequer.
Of course that makes no sense at all, it seems to be random words thrown together to make some kind of gibberish. If you directly compare it to the original sentence you can see what has happened.
With the words (one), (way), (to) and (checker) you can easily see how in the second sentence they have changed to words that still sound the same but mean something entirely different causing the sentence to make less sense. Your spell checker would not pick up on these wrong spellings as the words are not spelled wrong at all, they are just the wrong words for what you are trying to say.
With the words (and), (good), (this) and (spell) you will find how in the second sentence they have had a change of letter which leaves them redundant for what you are trying to write but a spell checker will not highlight them as such.
With the word (use) it has changed tense to past tense. Again a spell check would not pick up on this.
Oh and one last thing, what happened between (use) and (spell)? The word (a) seems to have disappeared completely. Always be careful about such things, not typing a small word can have disastrous effects.
Ok the example of the above sentence is a bit extreme and if ever anyone wrote that second sentence (the wrong one) when they were meaning to write the first one (the correct one) then maybe writing would not be for them. But, even the best writers make mistakes, it is easy enough to do. Those mistakes may not be picked up by a spell check, so what can you do?
By all means use a spell check on your writing it is what it is there for. But, never rely on it wholly. If you want to make sure what you have typed is what you wanted to type read it for yourself. Better yet, print it out and read it and use a pen or pencil to highlight any words that are wrong. Or, even better, get someone else to check it for you. It can be hard to spot mistakes that you have made yourself but others may find them easily.
Even if you find yourself making many mistakes in your writing do not despair as practice really does make perfect. With practice, not only will spelling get better but you will also find your writing improves too and that is the really important thing.
