    I'm a pretty good speller and pick out more mistakes in people's spelling then I wish to. I don't care overly much about spelling, though. If it's understandable it works.

    Seems to me that spelling ability can be achieved through attention to details as well as general understanding of how words are constructed so there isn't some great N/S divide.

    I'm a poor spellur.

    It may or may not have something to do with being COMPLETELY INDIFFERENT to how things should be spelled.

    People fuss way too much about it. It's annoying, and comes off as arrogance when people bitch about it all the time.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I go by what seems right when I spell something. I'm usually a pretty good speller on the computer, but I make a lot of typos because my right hand is faster than my left.

    I notice that I spell well when I'm writing down stuff from my own head but really shittily when I have to take anything dictated. I come up with crazy and stupid errors with letter where they completely don't belong. Is this my brain typoing?

    Maybe it's not related to type how well someone spells by why they're concerned with it or not.

    I try to spell properly in order to communicate more effectively, but shit happens when I'm in a rush.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I'm a word nerd and I've always had a knack for spelling.

    My mother learned by See and Say and I learned by phonics, and I can spell my ass off and she can't spell cat. She's a good writer, but she can't spell.

    I think there's a correlation between reading and spelling. I hypothesize that good readers are better spellers.

    When I was a kid I was a very good speller... For some reason, I've lost it a little. I'm not terrible, and can sense when i've spelled something wrong. I think that spell check made me lose my spelling ability. This website made me realize that I can't spell words that I use a lot.

    Such as:
    strength (seriously.. it took me forever. stregnth? streghnth? strenth? )
    necessarily (necissarily? neccissarily? neccisarily?? who the hell knows???)
    definitely (definately? definatly? definitly?)

    and finally,

    recommend: (I started off right and then started to second guess myself. Reccommend? Reccomend? Recomend? noo.. )

    I place value on spelling because when I see something that I know is misspelled it impedes my reading and I get stuck on it. I think it kind of detracts from the point. So I figure that other people probably feel the same way, so I try to spell as accurately as I can. (Sometimes that means editing a couple of times.) I've even recently caught myself on the

    too's and the to's and the than's and the then's and the there's and the they're's.

    Don't know where my spelling head has been at!!!
