  8. i dont think most of us here really care too much about spelling as long as you can understand what the person is typing then its all sweet

    but to make people understand what you are trying to say i will use some phrases to make it easier

    (there)
    look the ball is over there

    (their)
    its their bike dont sit on it

    (they're)
    they're are coming with us

    hope this helps a little

  9. There, their, they're ClaireB

    There is no spell check on this forum, something that could be easily added on so their spelling can be corrected if they're not very good at it.

  19. I have no idea why some people can't spell, and some can, it's not always an issue of education. I think it's because some individuals language is based on auditory thought, so to them it is more important for their communication to "sound right" than to "look right".

    However this is just a theory of mine, and I have nothing to back up this theory, which is my theory, and belongs to me and I own it, I'm keeping it, not sharing it, retaining full title and all intellectual property therein, so sod off and get your own bloody theory.

  20. to = preposition showing movement towards something
    "He went to the bike shop."

    too = adverb (modifies a verb) meaning "also", "as well as"
    "I went to the bike shop too."

    two = number after one (1)
    "The two of us went to the bike shop."

    Very common errors:

    its/it's = (unless it means "it is", it has NO apostrophe)
    your's = no such word
    Simple plurals don't need apostrophes: hence, videos, DVDs, NOT video's, DVD's

    Are we having fun yet?


    :p
