Spelling Correctly – Does It Matter Any More?

When I was growing up, it was imperative that every word was spelled correctly in any paper or letter you wrote.  I didn’t have ‘spell check’ on my typewriter, I used the dictionary.

Things are different now.  Kids don’t use a dictionary, they rely on their electrical devices to correct their spelling mistakes.  Or in some cases, they spell words in new and creative ways.

Recently a twitter exchange between a Frederick County Public School student and a school employee went viral – over a misspelled word.

So I did some research, and found some of the ‘best’ misspelled words on social media. They are actually very funny, so maybe I should be thanking them for a good laugh!  Or maybe thanking them for ‘righting’ so well!


Iford Tower instead of Eiffel Tower.

Running arrons instead of running errands.

Raw man noodles instead of Ramen Noodles.

Seizure salad instead of Caesar Salad.

Human bean instead of human being.
