This morning while browsing HubPages I had the good fortune to read a Hub by Dorsi about using the spellchecker and care before pressing the publish button. Nicely written. Well... here I am... teacup in hand... taking a look at Forums. What do I see?? A glaring typo! At the Forums part of this site (I'm internet lingo lacking), look at the description under the Family heading. It includes: "... and even mother-in-laws". (Tisk, tisk.) It's the mothers who are plural: "... and even mothers-in-law." Don't you love it? The Universe sprinkles amusement wherever we find it!
I'm sooo enjoying HubPages. Can you tell?
Have a fabulous day!
(Oh, oh. No spell checker associated with this part of the site.)
What's that book? Eats, shoots and leaves?! Grammar can be a tricky thing and the English language is quite complicated. I don't know what I'd do without spell check, although it doesn't do anything for my grammar! Still, at least it's keeping you occupied.

When i comment on a hub, before i hit ok i use the spell-checker to correct the typos. But after posting my comments for one reason or another i had to edit them sometimes re-writing a whole new one but i notice that...
