Here is an example of how spell check doesn’t always help. “Untied” is spelled correctly. Unfortunately, “untied” isn’t the correct word in this instance. #proofthatblog #proofreading #untiedvsunited
I saw this recently in an Amazon affiliate application. Really, Amazon?
I noticed this when I was doing an ECF filing last week. All I can do is shake my head.
We found this error on a drink menu at a restaurant we recently visited. Perhaps if they’re going to abbreviate “glass” to be “gls,” they should abbreviate “pitcher” to be”pit.” That would at least fix this error.
I found this one on Twitter. It should be ASKING for immunity. It is nice to know that it isn’t just my news station that has these kinds of errors.
My news station of choice always keeps me in material. This time it was a story about Burger King’s plan to distribute toothpaste that tastes like a Whopper (it was an April Fool’s joke). While the name of the toothpaste here is correct, the headline on the screen is not. Whoops . . . I mean Whooper!
A loyal Proof That follower sent this to me. She says that the word “trustee” is spelled correctly on the reverse side of the sign.
One of my favorite sites is Cake Wrecks. I found this on that page and am sharing it here. Spelling matters! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
While I understand that some cities are difficult to pronounce and/or to spell, Tucson is the second largest populated city in Arizona, so our Phoenix news station should certainly know how to spell it. Pronounced “two saun,” if someone has problems remembering how to spell it, you could pronounce it “tuck sun” (but only in your head please) to help spell it right.
I saw this goof in a Walgreen’s recently. This is an example of a product that has been around long enough that retailers should have no problem spelling it.
