Interesting observations on this thing we call life
SPELL-CZECH KNOT ALWAYS WRITE
Bye Bill Done
Few people no how two spell these daze. Thee art of spelling has awl butt dyed. Aye blame it on hire technology. Whee due nothing but watch tea vee wile wading fore the phone two wring. Know won spends much thyme learning too reed ore right any moor.
Butt eye still think spelling is vary important. Fore example, eye wood never send a column too the noose paper without first using the spell Czech on my computer. This particular column past the test with flying colors: knot a single word spelled wrong.
Inn my case, aye yews hire technology too help my righting. Eye due knot abandon thee auld weighs of doing things just bee cause they have gone out of stile. Proper grammar and spelling are the hart and sole of communication.
Aye new this wood happen years ago wen schools let students yews calculators instead of learning the basics. “Why memorize that to plus too equals fore, and for plus for equals ate, when the calculator does it four ewe?” people said. Learning bye rote is a boar, eye admit, butt it is thee only weigh to grasp the hole concept and sea the big pitcher.
Nowadays most folks cant due simple math, like ad and subtract, and their helpless if the calculator cannot bee found. (Yew should here them wine and grown wen this happens.) And it’s awl do two a lack of basic knowledge.
It was just a matter of thyme before this lazy thinking drifted over too the field of language. As they say, wen id reigns it pores. With spell Czech programs on most computers, any won can fix they’re spelling eras buy pressing a button on the key bored.
It’s gotten sew bade these daze. Things half certainly taken a tern four the wurst. Many young buoys and girls spend much of there school Dei learning about sects—like how too putt a condom on a banana. Theirs hardly any time left for the three arse: Reeding, Righting, and ‘Rithmetic. (The word ‘Rithmetic is, of coarse, slang. It is knot a reel word, and when the spell Czech points this out too me, iamb smart enough too ignore it.)
Know matter what they’ve bin taut inn school, kids knead two no that they’re use of the language will determine how far they go inn life. Weather they like it oar knot, people will judge them baste on there command of English—and this awl sew includes spelling.
Ewe wood never ketch me being lazy ore sloppy with my spelling. (This applies, naturally, two my grammar, to.) If aye half two, eye take extra thyme to poor over each and every word to make sure their is know miss steak. It is simply the rite thing to dew inn the interest of clear communication.
The ability to Cher ideas with words—rather then using a growl or a barque—is the won thing witch separates us from the animal whirled. Aye often ring my hands and shed a tier for are disintegrating culture.
Eye prey that won day hour society terns Bach too a love and respect four grammar and spelling. It wood bee grate two sea young people putt fourth the extra effort two get it write and take sum pried in there ability too express themselves clearly and correctly.
I don’t mien two boast, butt aye hope the youngsters will follow my axe ample. Hire technology can bee a wonderful tool to a cyst the righting process, butt it must knot bee used as a crutch. Unlike sew many other arias of society, we must not take the easy weigh out when it comes to language. Are entire civilization hangs inn the balance.
