Regular Spelling
Thoughts and observations about language

You?

So right now there's a Nerd Quiz floating around the Off-Topic end of Notebook Forums. The highest so far has been a score of 85, I got 65 myself.

One particular member of Notebook Forums isn't that great at spelling. In fact he's downright terrible. More or less he is the antithesis of a dictionary.

He took this test, and scored a 52.

Wait, no, he didn't score at all.

As he put it, "Well FOOK I scoured 52."

Scoured.

As in, "To clean, polish, or wash by scrubbing vigorously" according to American Heritage Dictionary.

A far cry from scoring, I think. All the result of one simple, extra letter.
