Spell-checkers Can't Think for You
Spell-checkers are not substitutes for thinking like an editor. For example, you might not see a red squiggly line under affect, even when the correct answer would be effect.
Example: What affect did that have on you?
The sentence above should actually read: What effect did that have on you?
Yet my spell-checker did not find this error.
To become less dependent on spell-checkers, visit my FREE Commonly Confused Words section.
