Spelling Counts

Posted on March 18, 2005 by Sarah Eaton.

Tstitle It's got a few problems, this tinySpell app, most notably that we're all constantly typing words that don't really exist (like passwords and BeTuitive), and each time that happens, tinySpell (not recognized as a word by tinySpell, incidentally) beeps and turns yellow.

However...I still dig it.  What it does is check your spelling no matter where you're typing (hence the abovementioned difficulties). 

Even though I'm a proofreading devotee, sometimes things still slip past me.  Because I'm not always typing in Word, and because I am a firm believer in correct spelling, this app is right up my alley.

Thanks to alltheseideas (also not a word) for pointing me toward it.

I'd appreciate your reply regarding my question. Should the word "abovementioned" be written as one word, two words or hyphenated?

Thank you

Unfortunately, there isn't an easy answer to that question, as all three choices you presented are used. I say "abovementioned." That seems to be the most popular rendering. But, that doesn't mean that the other two choices are wrong. It's a question of style and consistency. Hope that helps.
