The perils of sound-alike words
For writers, sound-alike words can mean trouble. It’s awkward to realize you’ve used the wrong “there/their/they’re” or that you typed “accept” when you meant “except,” but other sound-alikes can be even more embarrassing.
For example, a student in one of my classes recently used the word “fowl” instead of “foul.” That put an entirely different twist on the sentence … and not in a good way.
The blurb below has the same problem — can you spot it?
The first person to spot and correct this typo earns two points extra credit. Please post your correction as a comment.
