Three of those words are spelt wrongly, you fool............

Actually I am a texting obsessive - I always make sure everything is spelt and punctuated fully and correctly..........

.............. yes, even a text message - it reflects the impression the receiver gets of the sender, don't you think?

It's also why I boycott their products - and why their apparel is banned in my son's school, and many others...........

Cambridge haven't done any such research...

Does spelling matter?:

Wee halve a spelling chequer,
It came with hour pea sea.
It plainly marques four hour revue
Miss steaks wee kin not sea.
Wee strike a key and type a word,
And weight for it two say,
Weather wee ah wrong oar write,
It shows us strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long,
And wee can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.
Weave run this poem threw it,
Were shore your pleased two no,
Its letter perfect awl the weigh,
Hour chequer tolled us sew!
