To spell, or not to spell

      No Comments on To spell, or not to spell

I interviewed with a woman a few months ago, and was thoroughly amazed by what I learned.

It seems that this particular woman, a well educated employee of UW, has a little trouble with her spelling.

So what does she do to check the correct spelling of the word? Does she look it up in the dictionary or possibly ask a friend?

No. She opens a browser and types the word into Google as she thinks it should be spelled. If she gets a hit, she knows she has spelled it correctly.

Does anyone else see a problem with this?

What do you think?
