Congradulations, A Word Aptly Written!

The reaction to the new site has been fantastic.  Many, many wonderful notes have come in with the above message.   Hey, wait a minute.  What’s wrong with this picture?  Did the Editor in Chief really write that title up there?  Does she know how to spell?  Well, yes, she does.  Did you know that spelling CONGRATULATIONS with a “D” as in C-O-N-G-R-A-D-U-L-A-T-I-O-N-S is one of the most common spelling mistakes you will see on the net?   It’s not only on the net either, folks.  You should have seen me the day I drove by my son’s middle school a few years ago and right there, on their front signboard, in 6″ high letters, for all the world to see was this: 

CONGRADULATIONS TO THE TEACHER OF THE YEAR!

I slammed on my brakes and just stared.  This was a school, a school where my kid was attending!  I stormed into that principal’s office and, suffice it to say, they do not spell CONGRATULATIONS with a “D” any longer.  🙂

Stay tuned for more common spelling mistakes and other writing faux pas on Wednesday.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ABRAHAM LINCOLN!

  1. I love words too, but I never was very good at spelling bees. Looking forward to reading more. I’m going to put you on my google reader.
