Sars does it again

No, not the disease, the much more talented writer.

"Sincerely Your's" has been one of my favourite grammar guides ever and now she's followed it up with "Sincerely Your's II: Pirates of the Carribean".

My favourite entry, because I've been seeing this particular error a lot lately:
adverse/averse
"I'm not averse to the idea." NOT "adverse."
I think "commerical" might be more of a typo problem than a grammar one (I know I have an autocorrect entry for it) and I say "supposably" when I'm trying to channel Joey Tribbiani, but otherwise, I'm with her all the way.

I actually had to stop reading that list of errors because I could feel them seeping into my head ... pernicious as they as.

It should be "Caribbean," not "Carribean." Oops!

wahj > Oh dear, your typo is showing ;)

kungfuzi > Er ... the misspelled article title is deliberate. Scroll down the linked page to see the entry for, well, "Carribbean".

panaphobic > Hey, he's a worthy pop culture icon! Who's given us such gems as "supposably", "man-bag" and everybody's favourite pick-up line, "How you doing?"
