Common English Spelling Errors

A friend of mine just posted this on her Facebook profile. It's good, so I thought I'd share it with you folks here. It's a bit crude at times, but not completely offensive. Enjoy!

Ha! I like that. I'm a terrible speller. Funnily enough, most of those are things I spell correctly. I do always misspell 'definitely' (I'm guilty of wanting to use an 'a'), and I do say 'alot', but I do know that is wrong. I don't care, because to me it's more visually pleasing than 'a lot'. And what *I* think is way more important than what the rest of the English-speaking world thinks.

I'll admit I make mistakes with apostrophes, like "it's" versus "its", but I do know those rules. My mistakes there come from typing too fast and not proofreading.

Thank you very much with your contribution.

Really and really you should to believe me, I liked me it bunch off, sometimes we the Spanish speakers writing bad the words, I did it.

I knew about the alot is bad wrote, really it should be a lot, and well the word it's (it's ok).

Nothing to do with intelligence. Think about it.

It has if there is any correlation between intelligence and awareness of language - you need to be aware of possessive adjectives and their use (and no, you don't need to know what they are called ).

But dyslexics tend to be intelligent.
