If you don't know how to spell and use those words even before you get into college, that's a bad thing, although I must confess that I may have misspelled "weird" on one or two occasions (typos).

I have all of those nailed, but if spell check ever ceased to exist I would never write the word "necessary" ever again. I don't know why it gives me so much trouble.

It's just like "professor" - the S's double up, not the other consonants. If you had two C's, it'd be pronounced "nekessary."

"Necessary?" Eh.

"Necessarilly...Necessaraly...Necarislkj?"

I hate it. I also hate saying "rural".

No matter how many times I try to tell my undergrad students about these mistakes, some still make them on their papers. I have a handout and everything, and some students just can't stop with the errors. The 'then'/'than' mistake just makes me :evil: now.

I assume Legal Writing can be done on a computer vs pen/paper... If so, I'll continue to use this new resource called spellcheck. It even auto-corrects your/you're. :wink:

So what you're saying is that 10 rules of 5th-grade-level grammar have basically defeated you?
