GAH! I must be b0rk3n or something…
I was writing (as in pencil and paper) my Linguistics homework a moment ago, and I used a word when I was unsure of the correct spelling. After I wrote the word, I paused for a split second to allow the OS X spellchecker to underline the word with red if I was wrong. Then I realized I was writing, not typing on my computer.
Help! My brain is being taken over by computers! Actually… don’t help. This could be fun ;o).
In case you’re curious, the word was stigmatization. Too bad I don’t have time to take a sociolinguistics (which isn’t in my spell checker) class at Swarthmore.
