    His computer doesn’t have spell check?

    I have dyslexia; writing anything is difficult.

    My fingers tend to mix up “in”, “on”, “if”, “of” and so on. Spell check won’t catch them, either. And then I reread my own text and wonder what the heck was I trying to say.

    I let other people deal with my shortcomings.

    @cenright: Right, keep relying on spell check.

    My favorite is form instead of from; that o is so pushy.

    I have this quirk where, when writing a word that ends with “in”, I’ll tack a “g” on without even thinking about it. Makes writing words like “aspirin” problematic.

    My most common are teh, adn, form, and remeber.

    And apparently, he doesn’t understand the subjunctive in English: “If it WERE many smart people.”

    My spell check works overtime, what it can’t catch is when I miss writing a whole word in the middle of a sentence.

    I need “what I meant” check, spell-check doesn’t catch a wrong word if it’s spelled correctly or tell you when you put a word in the wrong place

    Spelling in English is so absurd! I think it is because we borrow from so many other languages.
    There are rules, but they are very inconsistent.
    .
    “i” before “e”, except after “c”, or words that don’t follow that rule like “science”
    .
    Vowel combinations, double letters, and silent letters trip me up a lot.
    .
    Example: Put a label on the table. “el” or “le” They sound the same—WHY THE DIFFERENCE!
