I just spent an hour looking over past comments I received on various posts. Each one contained an inexplicable word. I asked the person who wrote the comment to explain the seemingly inexplicable. I hope I don’t embarrass anyone, especially me. Maybe they were just typos. I didn’t ask about the ones that I thought were actual typos. The people I did ask can refuse to answer. That would be fine. I just had to ask.
Having written four novels and numerous technical reports and memos, I know that editing out mistakes is a lot of work. I once changed the sex of a character in one of my books without noticing. A friend caught it before I published it, thank goodness. You may wonder how I could do such a thing, loosing track of a charater’s sex. It was easy. The character was a dog…I mean an actual dog, one with fur, fangs, claws, and all that.
And now I notice a typo in one of my attempts to get a “word” explained!
