Spelling mistakes
 
http://worldobserveronline.com/2013/...h-cry-and-gag/

A whole load of amusing spelling mistakes found in India. :)


Before anyone accuses me of being unkind I am not laughing at someone attempting to use a second language, merely at the unintended results.

I amke soo many typos ;)

With me it comes from not going over a post carefully before submitting, although even when I do, the errors never seem to pop out until I actually submit the post.:confused::confused:

With regard to that, there is an English council proposing to drop the use of the apostrophe on road signs, so St Anne's road will become St Annes road etc.
