Granted, I do on occasion just straight make up words (usually faux expletives), and I'm not surprised when the spell check doesn't know what the french toast to do with those. But adverbs? Uncommon verb tenses? Come on!
(Somewhere, some brilliant code writer is cursing my name for whining about some insignificant detail of their masterpiece. Do I have any idea what it takes to make a functioning system? Nope. Does this mean I can't thrash about over a sub par spell checker? Noooo.)
And, to be fair, the English language is inordinately cruel. I could barely get my near-genius high schoolers to understand half the rules of grammar in my SAT prep classes; how can I possibly expect a series of codes and equations to correctly identify what it is I am doing with my words?
But I am a Wordie. (For sure just made that word up, so I won't hold that against you, Spell Checker. It's like Foodie, see, but I am ardently interested is in words. More specifically, grammar, but I didn't want to walk around claiming to be a Grammie. That's just awkward.) And thus I get worked up about situations such as these.
Except when it comes to the LOL Cats. That's just good, clean fun.
*To demonstrate my point, I have taken the liberty of making red all the words that Blogger does not recognize in its spell check. They are, in fact, actual words. At least they are according to Dictionary.com. I heart Dictionary.com.
