Funny Spell Check Errors

And, no, I did not get this from a Word of the Day calendar. (i got it from Stumble Upon!)

Okay, I admit it! I am a cynophilist! (funny, when you use spell check on this word, meaning "lover of dogs, you get "philistinism"...?) Using spell check can bring some rather hilarious outcomes, and if you don't catch them you can end up with a rather serious problem in your post, article of email!

Here are some spell check errors for rather rarely used words; *note - if you have suggestions please leave them as comments.

cynophilist (lover of dogs) comes our as philistinism

aillerophile (lover of cats) comes out as thermophile...

susumus ((a whisper) comes out as museum

bezaleel (shadow of God) comes out as freezable

Chatoyant (resembling a cat's eye) comes out as Chatanooga

Vaticinate (prophecy, to foretell) comes out as Cincinnati

bouleversement (reversal of fortunes) comes out as overstatement

mithril (fictional) comes out as thrill

Lophepramene (a drug) comes out as gramophone

There are thousands of these mistakes that occur everyday. Lettuce know your favorite spell check errors! (leave as a comment)

      I know that spell check can be made to think any word is good, but the auto-correct on smartphones, which is a form of spell check, is rather hilarious! Thanks for dropping by, LoveDoc!

      Lettuce, Lol. If a word doesn't show up on the spell check, just add it. You can't always rely on the spell check.

      Fun stuff. Double-checking auto correct and all the tools for that matter is a smart move.

      Thanks for dropping by, the all-knowing un-named spy! When typing on a small smartphone, the phones become rather stupid, as do the owners when they don't check their text before hitting send!

      yeah, autocorrect can get you into some real troubles!

      I keep auto correct turned off. It is dangerous. I would rather do without spell check than use auto correct.

      Thanks for the visit, Becky!

      Spell check can sometimes be almost as funny as autocorrect, but not quite!

      Lol! Good'un. Voted up and funny.

      (Spell check wants to turn Good'un into Goudnod, what's that?)

      I figured it was. I get a kick out of the changes that the spell checker and grammar checker want to do to my work. I do not misspell words. I occasionally make grammar errors but sometimes I have typos, so I check. They are funny sometimes.
