Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea

Eye strike a key and type a work
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar wright
It shows me strait aweigh

As soon as a mist steak is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error write
Its rare lea ever wrong

I have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.

Yes, yes, yes, it lacks apostrophes I know I know

"your pleased"


Actually that IS the way you spell "you're" if you are under 25! Unless you are texting, in which case you only need the last two letters.

Try running it through your grammar checker if you really want a surprise. Betcha it doesn't find more than about two, three things wrong with it.

Could you say which? I have no spelling checker.
I think sew should be saw.

I have a spell checker
It came with my PC
It plainly marks for my review
Mistakes I cannot see

I strike a key and type a word
And wait for it to say
Whether I am wrong or right
It shows me straight away

As soon as a mistake is made
It knows before too long
And I can put the error right
It's rarely ever wrong

I have run this poem through it
I am sure you're pleased to know
It's letter perfect all the way
My checker told me so.

Please, God! I hope I didn't screw anything up!!! :0)

Thanks for that Faldage - brings back memories of learning phonetics nearly 25 years ago! I remember that story and I've always wanted to find that again!
