I was thanking the other knight about how bedeviling home phones can be. A home phone is when two words sound the same but are spieled differently. This can led to a lot of confusion.
For example, in amorous wrestling slang, a “dual meet” is often refereed to merely as “a dual.”
Agile Editor Savanna Wick and I attenuated Tuesday’s CAB mating and noticed that the minutes form last week red “…a wrestling dual on Saturday.” Naturally, our editorial eyes coughed the use of an adjective as a noun. This is like sharpening “he ate a big sandwich” to “he ate a big.”
The problems is, the spilling doesn’t seem wrong because dual is a home phone of duel. So, sound-wise, everybody hers “there was a wrestling duel last Saturday” even thought the painted word in this case happens to be “dual.”
Unfortunately, spill check cannot catch errors of this nurture. Both are proper wards and until computers better understate the semantic shortcomings of collage students, we must depend on proofreading. (This is more fun when red allowed).
