I'm a dreadful pedant. I'm as guilty of finger trouble as anyone else, but the same things keep cropping up which I'm learning to accept. Brought instead of bought, there and their, should of instead of should have, to and too, and a real bug of mine loose instead of lose.

There are others but these are the ones that stand out.

Hi Janieb,

You need to tone down the pendant in you ;)

I've never understood 'brought' instead of 'bought'. I've even known folk that say it.

Kind regards, Mac

Hi Brainsey,

mispronunciation:
lyebri (library)
factri (factory)
Febuary (February)
suprise (surprise)

misspelling
cresent (crescent)
seperate (separate)

Kind regards, Mac
PS one I always get wrong often is choosing the right word to describe paper, pens, etc. - stationery and stationary
