Shades wrote:
wrong: input
right: input (Although "imprison" is irregular and uses an "m" for whatever reason, in this case it's a natural "n.")


These are both the same.

Asbman wrote:
wrong: Apostates are deprIved as adults.
right: Apostates are depraved as adults.



Deprived is right.

de·prived (d-prvd)
adj.
1. Marked by deprivation, especially of economic or social necessities.
2. Lacking in advantage, opportunity, or experience: "Preschool is designed to give children from educationally deprived households an early boost" Jeff Brody.

Shades wrote:
wrong: your self
right: yourself


Both are correct. Yourself means you. Your self means, your self which is yourself.

Shades wrote:
wrong: litering (because you're not dropping liters of fluid on the ground)


It is spelled 'litre' [leeter] not [lighter].

Shades wrote:
wrong: reaks
right: reeks


This is slang so can be written however one wishes to write it.

Shades wrote:
wrong: congradulations
right: congratulations


The former looks more appropriate. I fall for this one, which is strange because when one is writing shorthand, one writes 'congrats'.

Shades wrote:
wrong: truly
right: truly


Again both of these words are the same.

Shades wrote:
wrong: definitely
right: definitely


They are the same.

Shades wrote:
wrong: balling
right: bawling


Depends in which context they are used.

Shades wrote:
wrong: ridiculous
right: ridiculous


These are both the same.

Some are merely typing errors.

I am glad to know, however, that my spelling isn't as bad as I thought.

Could you give us grammar lessons too? I need to work on grammar, or so I think.



Pirate.

The reason some of those spellings are the same is because I subsequently turned on the word filter to automatically change the wrong version to the right version. Don't worry, when I made the original post, the misspellings were intact.

Beyond that, I request that you just take my word on the correctness of those other spellings. With all due respect to you, Imwashingmypirate disagreeing with Dr. Shades about proper spelling is somewhat akin to Christopher Reeve disagreeing with Bruce Lee about proper Kung Fu.

And yes, I do have a thread full of grammar lessons, all of which I highly suggest you incorporate. It's at:

Dr. Shades's Grammar Lesson of the Day

And please pronounce it (and all biblical name with the letter "j") as if it were "y". The non-english part of the world do the same. (OK, in spanish the "j" sounds as "h" but every rule has an exception and THIS rule may have one.)

As an atheist please don't spell this word as "athiest".

wrong: dissodance Isn't this what the LDS apologists do- a dissonance dance? Man, I hope I spelled that correctly.

As far as naïve goes, I ain't goin' to the trouble of doing that dot thing over the i.

I think you missed the joke. I hope Dr. Shades got it (hint: look up the word depraved).

You can't spell Shades without Hades.

I think Shades should give us back our smilies while Nehor is on vacation.

I have to admit, that would be pretty funny. Don't do it, though!

Question: How many smilies did William Shakespeare need to use?

When it comes to smilie abuse, there will always be a Nehor.

The difference is that I updated the word censor after I made that entry.

I don't know if you've posted this one, Shades. I've noticed it quite a lot.
