I've seen people misspell "lose" as "loose" around here, and elsewhere, with some frequency. Never, however, have I seen it the other way around.


Dominant/dominate

Contaminate/contaminant.

Lose/loose.

There are plenty more, but those are the ones that make me grind my teeth.


The past tense of "lead" is "led"...

... but many spell it "lead" because it sounds like the the soft, toxic metal "lead" (i.e., Pb on the periodic table).


Assure/ensure. Accept/except. *

Don't even get me started on its/it's, their/there/they're, and you're/your. The fact that people on these boards get those wrong makes me weep for the future.


I cannot understand this.

I posit that this (to me) inexplicable spelling/grammar mistake is made more out of proportion to intelligence than perhaps any other (as opposed to, for instance, using an apostrophe in the pluralization of a word, a sure sign of fatal ignorance unquestionably accentuated by at least a decade of trailer-park life).

Hopefully they don't spank it...at least in public. *
