For......non-precise typists and impressionistic spellers, there is a little spellcheck button. It leads to a site that downloads a program, but I cant get it to work. How do I get the spell check thingy to work. Thankyou.
And yes I am aware I spelled both dancing and lotus incorrectly It was intentional.
Oh and sorry , can't help you with your problem mines built in although it's full of errors it's self.
" ieSpell - English (U.K.)"
There's no such thing as English (U.S.)...!!
I've long admired Thomas Jefferson, who in the space of a paragraph would spell the same word in the same context in two or three different ways. Road (n) would alternately be spelled rode and road, for instance. On at least a couple occasions he was heard to complain of the narrow mindedness of a man who said there was only one correct way to spell a word.
Samuel Johnson's dictionary, published in 1755, predated Noah Webster's dictionary by 73 years ( a lifetime). In that time the Americans proved to be increasingly eclectic in their spelling. Arguably, Noah Webster can be given his due, but the singling of some double vowels where no dipthong or long vowel sound is discernable seems to me to be a reasonable development. The second syllable of "color" does not sound like tour, so why not write "color" instead of "colour?"
So it is with other phonetic/linguistic things too. It's the meaning that counts. All the rest is just window dressing. Sometimes we misunderstand, too, and then trying to get it all typed out aright and spelled nicely might be like having a blind man chart a map based on points of light.
Again, awkward as it may be to misspell at times, it's much more agreeable than using words wrongly. I should know. I do it all the time.
Be kind. Somebody's teacher is Miss Spelling.
show some sensitifity.
But that just might be too high concept for its own good.
