Raymond Knowles’ unique system corrects the errors your spell checker can’t fix and gives you what you really want: a document that makes you look good and that you can confidently submit to anyone without fear of rejection due to obvious homonym errors.
Just think about it, how many times, without even being aware of it, have you or someone you know, used the word “too” instead of “to”, or “there” instead of “their”, or “your” instead of “you’re”
These are examples of homonym and homophone errors. You already know that the person who reads any documents you submit, without even seeing you, will form an opinion of you, based solely on how well your document is written.
Knowles’ system will find and correct any misused homonyms in a document. That will give you the best possible chance, and the edge you need, to present yourself as the informed, bright, and knowledgeable person you must be just to get noticed these days, not to mention being considered for anything.
If you are an ESL instructor, this tool will add to your students’ overall understanding of how homonyms function, making your job a lot easier. Isn’t that what you really want?
Why These Mistakes Get Past Your Spell Checker
The problem with spell checkers is that they don’t check for homonym/homophone errors. They only check for spelling errors. If the homonym is spelled correctly, even if it is the incorrect homonym, your spell checker is not programmed to check any further for contextual accuracy, but Knowles’ system does so automatically.
If you visit https://terriblywrite.wordpress.com you’ll see hundreds of real examples of common homonym errors. Here are two examples from this site. Can you spot the errors in these phrases?
1) …various personal affects will be on the chopping block…
2) …inspiration from Calvin Klein and Fently Puma based on their brightly colored palate.)
If you chose the words “affect” and “palate” as being improperly used, you are correct. Errors such as these showed up on public billboards, in documents from members of Congress, in leading national news magazines, on placards in national parks, and several other embarrassing locations. These two ads (using “affects” and “palate”) were seen by millions of people; not a good recommendation for the authors…
(Just for the record, “palate” refers to the roof of the mouth and “palette” refers to a selection of colors.
To “affect” change means to have an “effect” on change. If you mean “bring about change,” you would use “effect”. (Knowles’ system picked up on these errors immediately and corrected them.)
The examples you just saw at https://terriblywrite.wordpress.com do not include the thousands of resumés for employment, essays from students at school, business proposals and all sorts of other documents that are submitted around the world daily. There are plenty of homonym errors to go around!
Knowles’ system 1) helps you to avoid the disappointment, frustration, embarrassment,
and aggravation that comes from submitting improperly written documents. Instead, 2) his system puts you in the best possible position for success by showing you how to produce finished documents that are free of homonym errors. Which of those two scenarios do you prefer? Hopefully you prefer both!
What Knowles Has Done To Solve This Problem
Knowles has always been fascinated by words, their pronunciation, their spelling, and how they fit together to form sentences.
As an Honor Roll student in Junior High School, English was always his favorite subject. He was chosen two years in a row to represent his Junior high school in the National Spelling Bee competition.
His love of language was one of the main factors that moved him to learn three languages besides English, and propelled him into a career of public speaking after finishing High School.
He has spoken before audiences numbering more than 10,000 people on various subjects ranging from religion, science, history, government, the environment, world peace, marriage, bloodless surgery, and mental health just to name a few.
His speaking engagements have taken. him to countries as far away as Africa, islands of the Caribbean and various cities across the United States.
Ironically it was his love of the written and spoken word that brought this homonym/homophone issue to his attention. So, he created a system that would correct this problem. Exactly what does it do?
Well suppose you had your own personal electronic tutor that was programmed to check out every homonym in your document.
And what if this tutor would display the definition for each one of these homonyms so you could simply insert the correct one directly into your document with just the click of your mouse? Would that be helpful to you?
And the cherry on top: You would be receiving an ongoing, continuous education. You would be learning what these words mean along with when and how to use them correctly.
Currently there are more than 3,000 homonyms in Knowles’ system database. Actually that electronic tutor does all the above and more and it’s available to you right here, right now today!
I’d Hate To Be A Horse In A Cowboy Movie
I enjoy a good western like Bonanza every now and then and so I’ve seen a lot of good guys catch a lot of bad guys. But then there are the horses. The silent, non-complaining, obedient, patient horses.
The cowboy ties his horse to the hitching post and goes into the saloon, washes down a couple beers, swaps a few tall tales with the ranch hands at the bar and then he decides it’s time to go home.
So, he goes outside and sure enough there’s his horse. He’s had no water and no feed to munch on. He’s just standing there with his head down waiting for the cowboy to come.
The cowboy climbs on the horse’s back, spurs him a couple times and says, “Giddy-up!” and the horse slowly trots away and he just keeps on trotting until the cowboy gets to his ranch where finally the horse can get some water, maybe some hay, and then he’s finished for the day.
I looked at my wife and said, “Man, that poor horse! He has no life of his own…he can only do what others tell him to do, whether he likes it or not.” I looked at my wife again and said, “I’d hate to be a horse in a cowboy movie!”
But there is a positive side to this story: Knowles’ system is a lot like that horse. It just sits there silently behind the scenes; just a little icon in your toolbar at the top of your screen. Nothing happens until you click the icon.
The Solution Is So Simple
Once you click it, it goes into action and looks at every single word in your document to see if that word is a homonym or homophone and if not, it just keeps looking, line-by-line, word by word, until it finds one and then it automatically displays the different meanings for you thus making it extremely easy for you to select the right one. and then it quickly finds the next one for you.
Just like the horse in the movie, it just keeps working, never complains, and is always ready to go. In no time your entire document is finished.
