My daughter also has the Horrid Henry books and she carries them arround and talks to them as if its really Horrid Henry. She takes the books to bed and tucks them in beside her! :lol:

Apparently both. 9 out of 10 words in a row spelt correctly is good for me, especially if its a word which i haven't specifically learned, as i tend to spell phonetically.
I can actually read and spell better in Macedonian. Even though they use a different alphabet, they spell phonetically, every sound has 1 corresponding letter. Unlike in English where we have 'th' or 'sh' which make different shound to the indevidual letters, or 'e' at the end changes the vowel sound, and all those silent letters throwen in just for the purpose of confusing you!

A lot of people struggle with spelling and therefore spell phonetically. The problem comes when they don't know how to pronounce the words correctly either.

My son is dyslexic, and he spelt later "Latur" earlier today which I suppose phonetically is pretty close!

He loves Horrible Histories, which is very good, as well as Doctor Who, but both the kids like Disneys' rubbish with those Two Twin boys in, so very annoying, as is anything with Tracey Beaker in! I do like WIzzard of Wavely place though, and I have an occasional guilty pleasure watching Glee. I have also enjoyed all HSM fims, Hannah Montanah, and the Twilight Saga, however I do feel that I really need to sort out my depression when I cry at the end of Glee!

Because it is a French word.

When we looking for a puppy many of the 'vendors', sorry I mean con men, were offering the puppy not only with food and his toys but a 'pet degree' :dontknow: . I didn't twig at first but when several replies had similar wording I searched online and found it was a common error with scams and should have read pedigree!

Isn't it great how a thread that started with spam about dodgy qualifications then turned into an interesting conversation about dyslexia and spelling, has now come full circle to dodgy qualifications! :lol:

These people convey degrees on pets. They offer "Courses for Horses." I wouldn't be entirely surprised if, alongside "Posh 'n' Becks" studies, some more forward looking universities weren't looking to boost their income with MScs in "Pet & Domestic Livestock Management" including modules in grooming, flea control and safe opening of tins. In fact, I'm pretty sure there's apps for all these already out for iPhone in addition to those telling people how to climb stairs, walk around while breathing & chewing gum at the same time and advanced bottom-wiping.

Thanks to all who offered an answer, I was aged about 9 when I got confused. As soon as I realised my error I used an old fashioned Dictionary, to look it up. :lol:


But now you've started me on an old rant that used to drive me crazy with irritation. The reference to pedigree. The braggart ( read dumb) people who would have a dog with a pedigree "as long as your arm" thank goodness that term has fallen from use.

I used to think when they said 'guerrilla fighters' on the news they meant apes. I imagined them lurking in trees with guns.
