Is spelling doomed?

January 11, 2012

While eating my Hubbards cereal, I found this delightful poem in their Clipboard (newsletter) #123.  As someone who  believes there has been a  woeful decline in spelling ability in the last decade, I chuckled away – Natalie


Ode to spellcheckers

Eye halve a spelling chequer,

It came with my pea sea,

It plainly marques four my revue,

Miss steaks eye kin not sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word,

And weight four it two say,

Weather eye am wrong oar write,

It shows me straight a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid,

It nose bee four two long,

And eye can put the error rite,

Its rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it,

Am shore your please two no,

Its letter perfect awl the weigh,

My chequer has tolled me sew!
