When Spell Check Doesn’t Help

I couldn’t count how many times I’ve written the word there, when I’ve meant their or they’re. That one is pretty obvious. The New York Times has a good column out this week that includes entries for their “sound-alike confusion” file. The After Deadline column is always worth a visit for reminders on grammar, usage and style. The Times’ writers and editors meet up with their readers over correct form and usage from the week’s articles. We can all learn from our mistakes, and getting a peek (or is that peak?) into the newsroom to learn from others is an added bonus.
