Are You a Bad Speler?

Posted by Teresa at 5:56 PM
How about we just give up on grammer altogether?:

Fed up with his students' complete inability to spell common
English correctly, a British academic has suggested it may
be time to accept "variant spellings" as legitimate.

Rather than grammarians getting in a huff about "argument"
being spelled "arguement" or "opportunity" as "opertunity,"
why not accept anything that's phonetically (fonetickly anyone?)
correct as long as it can be understood?

"Instead of complaining about the state of the education system
as we correct the same mistakes year after year, I've got a better
idea," Ken Smith, a criminology lecturer at Bucks New University,
wrote in the Times Higher Education Supplement.

If at first u don't suceed. Give up!
