    "Advanced knowledge" ? I don't think you need to have advanced knowledge to know the difference between brought and bought :what:

    In all honesty, I don't think Facebook is the place for pointing out mistakes. It's glaring errors in professional publications, billboards, catalogues, magazines etc that grind my gears.

    I agree. I was looking over my DP's shoulder yesterday as he posted on Facebook...he wrote 'choose' instead of 'chose'. It's lucky he's a wonderful man, he's hopeless at spelling and grammar! Bless him.

    My husband is one of the most intelligent people I've ever met, and writes beautifully. But sometimes his spelling leaves a bit to be desired... I've never let him live down the time he wrote a card to my mum and wrote "Best whishes"

    I was doing a puzzle in a magazine one day and had a complete mind blank. I had to ask dp how to spell cat. I literally wrote it with a 'k'. Haha how I did that I still do not know!

    Does anyone know when to use "literally" as opposed to "figuratively"? I assume literally applies to something which has actually happened, compared to something which has not?...But I am not sure.

    Literally is when something happened. If you say you literally died, you wouldn't be around to share that info!

    It kills me on the inside, but Oxford has added an informal definition to "literally", which basically means the opposite of the original meaning. But it's there now. In Oxford.
