This is an issue that has often been picked up on in this forum. The "English" police (you know who you are) like to find and point out mistakes.
I like to think that this is one bandwagon I haven't jumped on.
The reason being that English is my first and only language, and I have a great deal of admiration for our multicultural society in the 604 who do a bloody sight better than me in having fluency in more than one tongue.
All that preamble was written just to explain that the following link is not a slight - far from it. It's a quite useful guide to how to differentiate between some of the most often misspelled (sp) words.
Respect to all the multilingual forum users
