Spelling, grammar important to professionalism

Kayla Nebel

Professionalism is held in the highest regard by any institution that considers itself a credible source. An easy way for professionalism to be represented across the planes of white paper or through a computer screen is by using correct spelling and proper grammar.

Any mistake in these two areas can be an Achilles heel for communicators. Simple mistakes are capable of making any writer seem lazy and in need of the vital skills necessary to function in an intelligent society. After a small mistake, the writer’s credibility seems to deflate faster than a whoopee cushion as it’s tromped on by an elephant. It’s hard to rebuild credibility in the same piece of work after a simple slip of the finger messes up a word that kindergartners spell correctly.

So onestly, why do spelling and grammer even matter? One letter daesn’t maka too much uf a differance. It seams to be jast simantics to have the carrect lettars if the sownds are still the sayme. One latter rong does not meen the wrighter is dumm.

But eevn tehn, I can ccommniutae inofamniotn to a radeer eevn if the ltteers are in an icrrecnot oderr, sudteis form Cmabdgrie Uivstenrity hvae povren it.

We dnot raed eevry ltteer as we raed a wrod; sepillng deos not mttaer, our mndis can hlande it.
