The Bad Speller’s Dictionary – in a handy vinyl size!
It has been thirty years since we wrote the first book that answered the Catch-22 of spelling: How do I find a word in the dictionary if I don’t know how to spell it? Our answer was simple: Look it up by its wrong spelling. So we compiled the first dictionary for bad spellers – which so many of us are (some of us even flaunt it as a badge of pride). The nearly two million copies of the Bad Speller’s Dictionary that have been sold confirm the persistence of the spelling problem. In fact, our vast new collection of actual examples of misspellings from many sources – television, newspapers, magazines, advertisements, correspondence, essays, memos – suggest that the phenomenon has become much worse. That deterioration has been accelerated by our educational system, too much television, excessive reliance on electronic spell checkers, and the emergence of so many new words.
That’s why we have prepared this new, revised, and enlarged edition for the 1990’s. We have added thousands of current words from business, computers, entertainment, medicine, psychology, religion, science, and law.
