Correctly quoted Ralphism
I like words. They make me nice. In my pants.
I’m not sure when my love affair with words started, but it’s been going on for a while. And I have to admit, it’s very, very satisfying.
It’s also probably part of the reason why I’m really enjoying being an English language teacher so much. And I know they say, “a picture tells a thousand words,” but for me, words do so much more.
I also have quite a penchant for rules and order (item #52), as evidenced by the existence of my Game Police badge (item #67). And on numerous occasions I have been called to to confirm the rules, or be an adjudicator, to whichever game is being played by my friends.
So it’s no surprise that I got a little moist after clicking through to a link retweeted by @lukecaporn the other week:
It is a list of ten commonly misspelled words, their meanings, and their correct use. It includes some of my favourites: your/you’re, there/their/they’re, definitely, and its/it’s.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, or if you’re one of those people who needs a little help, I hope you find it educational :)
While on the subject of misspelled words, how about this double whammy I spotted on a Facebook ad?
