In a book I'm reading, I just saw: 'and properly great your uncle'
Seriously, why so many mistakes in published books?!
I read 'Notorious Nineteen' by Janet Evanovich last week. 2 typos. Annoyed me immensely, because I'm pedantic
This morning's pearler:
'Concurred his fear' instead of 'conquered his fear'.
I received a Worker's Comp Certificate at work the other day, which advised the patient was being 'reffered for sykological testing'.
It was written by a doctor. A doctor!
I have two funny ones to share with you -even if they were written by six year old girls lol! The kids in my class had to finish this sentence: "I went to the park and..." .
Child 1 wrote "I went to the park and I rid my ****" which after I stopped giggling realised she meant she went to the park and rode her bike (b/d confusion is always funny!).
Child 2 wrote "I went to the park and I played on the monkey ****".
I love the innocent spelling mistakes of little ones!!! Adults on the other hand.....
