remember remember that remembrance has no e between the b and the r, therefore saving a microsecond and averting the wrath of one Grumpy.

Temporarily, that is.

I am being a rebel,

I'm with you, Kevin.

Bad spillers of the world unite. You have nothing to lose but your chins.

Whoops. I seem to have gone off on a bad typing tangent. Spelling is fine - brain works quicker than fingers.

And why is it that plenty of people reMEMber to spell reMEMbrance right, from MEMory, but insist on referring to something called a MOMento?

Yours, with Grumpy in Pedants'R'us.

Can we go back to the shorter alphabet of Shakespeare's time.

And why don't early books have similar spelling? Because there where no dictionaries, and it was spelt as heard, and the earliest English mass consumption dictionaries where printed in the Birmingham region. I can now spell 'necessary' since I learnt that, I just imagine it spoken in that accent. Would we better if they had been printed near Oxford? There are some regions we must thank God it was not printed there first.

Is there a text short version for sms?

Yours who has an add-on spell check but still fails miserably,

I've just discovered remembrancer is a word

Remembrancer

An officer of the British judiciary responsible for collecting debts owed to the Crown.

An official who represents the City of London, as on ceremonial occasions.

I might try and use it in conversation

Only if you begin a sentence with a capital letter, Grumpy!

Changing tack slightly (if that is allowed in this hallowed hall of a learning thread), my Italian mother used to murder my father's proverbs and he never succeeded in helping her get them right :o

From memory, we had "I have killed 2 stones"

"all the cooks are in the kitchen"

"the bird is in my hand not the bush"

etcetera

Cheers

Shirley

I'm with the General thrust of the Thread Initiator. On the very slim off-chance that Kevin is not winding up :lol: , download ieSpell following a Google search for same.

'Rememberance' is not half as irritating as 'Boar War'.

Oink oink.

I have a photo of a veteran's gravestone where it is spelled that way.

Those discerning Pals who use Mozilla Firefox have a spell checker.

The Seminole War, a conflict with an Indian tribe in Florida in the 1800s, is sometimes called the "Seminal" War.
