    [QUOTE=Mod-Nomsie;8180774]Walla instead if voila. I wish I were joking. It's a BH specialty.[/QUOTE

    I've even seen "viola" instead of voila on my travels before; but I guess that one's more understandable as a typo, rather than just not being able to spell, since the o and i are right next to each other.

    Ha I spelt it that way in primary school and had to explain to my parents what my drawing of a chef was saying, and they found it funny enough that everyone in my family still spells it "Wullah" 20 years later

    You are forgiven since you were of Primary age

    Yes!!! Soooo annoying.

    I also hate the misuse of to and too on BH.

    Mind you I'm the worst proof reader in the world when it comes to posting on bubhub, never correcting the auto texts and clumsy finger mistakes.

    "Congradulations"
    "Chester drawers" (a friend told me about this one last night)
    "Fopa" instead of "faux pas"

    Those are all I can think of off the top of my head! "He's" instead of "his" is probably the one that bugs me most. I see it ALL the time! Oh and because it's Bub Hub:

    "I'm feeling nauseous" instead of "I'm feeling nauseated". That's rampant in the pregnancy world. If you're feeling nauseous it basically means you're making other people sick lol!
    I've seen "his" instead of "he's" a lot but not the other way around. Drives me nuts when I see it!

    "Little lone" instead of "let alone" also does my head in.

    I've never seen dilemma spelled as dilemna, it just looks so wrong! I am, however, another one who could have (could of? Haha!) sworn it was Berenstein.

    Well I asked DH about berenstein and dilemma and his responses:

    Who the eff are the berenstein bears?

    And

    I would spell it dilema

    Haha

    He is extremely intelligent but for some reason his spelling can really suck sometimes.

    Google is wrong and perpetuating the error. Google "nauseous nauseated" and read any of the articles from any of the grammar sites for the correct answer.

    I had an argument with a friend just recently about how words are being misused so much that it's becoming an accepted use of the word. It drives me crazy!

    I was guilty of it before I found out the correct use of the word. I was totally horrified that I'd been saying "nauseous" for years!
