Uncyclopedia talk:Pee Review/Spellcheck
I knew there were various uses for "cunt," but didn't expect it to be accepted by an Australian spell chequer--I didn't know the word had gotten that acceptable there, so I learned something.
Cunt is considered a profanity still, but is common enough that it is considered English, albeit vulgar. One thing about Australian English is we use vulgarities to reflect endearment, so that dozy cunt can refer to a friend who is somewhat stupid. My darling mother would never use the word, but I would - although I'd avoid it in mixed company.
"Injun" stood out to me as not working even before I ran the check--it looks like a spelling spell chequers would reject, and they did.
Which is why I've underlined it as though rejected by an MS spell cheque. I missed "apache" and "indian" though.
The fourth word none of the chequers recognized was "Wikipedia," and I think you could have some fun with this.
I didn't realise this one. I'll have to do something with it, but don't know what yet.
You might want to know that in America and some other parts of the English-speaking world, "aye" is pronounced like the letter "i" and not like the letter "a."
I know. I may end up changing that back to a
"may beast and," "au pair ate ting honour," "asp art offer."
"may be stand (alone)," "operating on a," "as part of a."
"pose eh sieves"

- I just happened to stumble on this or might not have known it was here. I'll quickly glance at the article again knowing what "may beast" etc. are. On my computer, injun isn't underlined--I still like "in jun" because it passes in Australia but not in Canada/America/Britain. Also I agree with your idea of making "aye" "a". Rabbi WHY???

- OK I checked the ones you pointed out that I didn't get. I see why I didn't get "au pair ate ting honour" and "asp art offer"--I tend to pronounce "a" as "uh," whereas these show "a" as "er." Those might work well for some English speakers, but not others. Rabbi WHY??? (shmuesn) 06:58, May 19, 2010 (UTC)
- Don't forget, in Au pair aye shun, I didn't get the meaning of were "stemming." What's that? Rabbi WHY??? (shmuesn) 07:02, May 19, 2010 (UTC)
Stemming is genuine. It's part of the spell checkker algorithm that breaks words down into their compenet parts, so down is the stem of downed, or something. I don't think it's apparent enough so I'm changing that. Wednesday, 10:41, May 19 2010 UTC
