Spell Checking

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Why is it that some Jargon words when you put thm into spell checker show another word that has the same meaning or seems to know what you are talking about: hence

    Pusser = Pisser. How did microsoft know that. Perhaps you have your own examples?

  2. A common one between my brother and I came from predictive text on mobile phones.
    Now when we say that something is book (book and the gang) we really mean cool.
    Yeah yeah I need to get out more......
     
  3. Spell checkers! Eeeeh, in my day you had to learn how to spell words properly or the teacher would give you the stick.

    And people weren't dyslexic either, they were thick.

    I have a spelling chequer.
    It came with my pea sea.

    Eye ran this poem threw it,
    Your sure reel glad two no.
    Its vary polished in it's weigh.
    My checker tolled me sew.

    A checker is a bless sing,
    It freeze yew lodes of thyme.
    It helps me right awl stiles two reed,
    And aides me when I rime.

    Each frays come posed up on my screen
    eye trussed too bee a joule.
    The checker pours o'er every word
    To cheque sum spelling rule.

    Bee fore a veiling checker's Hour
    spelling mite decline,
    And if we're lacks oar have a laps,
    We wood bee maid too wine.

    Butt now bee cause my spelling
    Is checked with such grate flair,
    Their are no fault's with in my cite,
    Of nun eye am a ware.

    Now spelling does knot phase me,
    It does knot bring a tier.
    My pay purrs awl due glad den
    With wrapped word's fare as hear.

    To rite with care is quite a feet
    Of witch won should be proud,
    And wee mussed dew the best wee can,
    Sew flaw's are knot aloud.

    Sow ewe can sea why aye dew prays,
    Such soft wear four pea seas,
    And why eye brake in two averse
    Buy righting too pleas.
