English spelling is a challenge, even for computers! Here is a reprint of a recently re-circulated poem on LinkedIn that highlights the "dangers" of putting too much trust into your computer's spell-check feature. This can lead us down the wrong path of communication. For those speaking English as a Second Language, who have less familiarity with English, the results can be somewhat amusing, if not embarrassing. Look at the passage below and see if you can make the necessary corrections. We'd love to hear from you to see if you know of any other similar passages:
Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
