    I spelled coughin' coffin' before: As soon as there was a pause in her hacking, Tina choked out, "Sorry, I can't stop coffin'." She imediately resumed her painful cough as she covered her mouth with both hands. o_O

    I don't know why, but for some reason I have trouble with sound alike words. I know the difference, but I still tend to type the wrong word... such as know for no, dual for duel, etc... and vice versa. Even to, too and two, I tend to mess up on, even though I know the difference. The funny thing is, as I type this post, I didn't mess up at all on them... just like when I talk about my stuttering, I don't stutter. :p

    I was rereading one of my favorite vignettes of all time and found that someone described a sound as a "Crash of symbols." Now, what would that look like or sound like?

    xD. I remember I was kinda writing and my attempts to put Palpatine and election in the same sentence made me write Electoral Palatinate.

    I recently just caught a sentence of mine where I had mis-spelled "emotion" as "emoticon" and "her" as "here."

    For some reason the phrase "[...] did some inkling of emoticon re-enter here," looks just a bit silly. 8-}

    This happened to me recently: someone had "encountered" something, but silly me swapped the position of the "o" and the "c". Oh, how that could have ended horribly.

    It's not exactly a Star Wars misspelling, but I saw someone write "pail" instead of "phil". I wonder who "pail" was? [face_mischief]

    My sister produced the most wonderful verbal typo (?) the other day. We were talking about Les Misérables - apparently Javert commits suicide by throwing himself off a fridge [face_laugh]

    I've been having a sift through this thread but if this one has been mentioned before, sorry in advance. Seen some hilarious typo's here though - my fave being "darkness crapped across the galaxy" XD
    I am also glad to see that many of you have fallen foul of the 'druids' auto spell checker thing too [face_laugh]

    One I remember cropping up in an old fan fic of mine was what should have been a simple line of Mara kissing someone goodbye which turned out like this...

    "She hissed him goodbye"

    I nearly fell out my chair when I read over that fic a year or so later, trying to imagine that scene normally has never worked since XD

    Funniest so far for me: "blond" as "bland" when describing Luke... and Luke is not bland!

    Depends on your point of veiw, I guess...

    That's what happens when you spend all your time writing about aliens instead of humans.

    I found a couple more amusing typo's in old fics of mine yesterday (druids aside), A mandalorian was apparently changed to mandatorian by the auto spell check D:

    Many times when I go to sign onto the boards, I accidentally type either Winstar, Wigstar, or Wingtar instead of Wingstar. Perhaps my fingers have an aversion to typing four consonants in a row. :p

    One time I wrote consolation instead of constellation.

    Did you teach earth-space science around twenty-five years ago? If so, you could be the teacher who graded the paper in which I made that error. [face_laugh]

    Okay, this is a long one. You know how on your mobile phone (cellphone for the US citizens amoung us ;) ) there is an option for predictive text, so that you can just type and type without having to select each individual letter? Yeah, well, for about a year it had me fooled. I would be meaning to use the word 'suppose'.

    However, whenever I would type it in, up came 'purpose'.

    And for an entire year, I couldn't figure out what this word 'purpose' (I was pronouncing it in my head "purr-Pose?") was. Until I was ranting about it at a party, and was put in my place by a 12 year old. A twelve year old girl had to teach me the English language. It was my biggest failing as a writer ever :p

    Not technically a spelling mistake, but a devastating lapse in 'knowing stuff'.

    Okay, I won't say who, but a dear reader of mine asked for a birthday present--"Finnish LYBJ by my birthday." I had to regretfully inform her that I only speak English and Spanish.
