Lol, I noticed 3 upon closer inspection.

Plus one word that's not even a word. Dodgy

RE: Stephen Fry's Nose
Well now, y'know that's only gonna make me look for them.

<pause>

I count 7 excluding the Americanisationalisms.

Was "vexted" the invented word? I'm not counting that cos I reckon the likes of Byron, Dylan Thomas and yea even Shakesy himself would have had no qualm in inventing such. "Thou vexted me" sounds much better than "thou vexed me".

Wow, I didn't even realize the "T". Lmao

I guess that makes 2 non-words.

That's one of the 3 I counted, but it's not the non-word. lol

I'm pretty sure "unwittedly" isn't a real word, but I don't know. "Unwittingly" would have been more appropriate.

I put the whole thing through spell-check; all it got was 3 (some of which were used multiple times, mind you). I'm thinking some of the ones you're catching are "Americanisations" that you don't realize are such (or one of the multiple uses of the already-established typos).

Ah. I often get the "it's" wrong. It doesn't matter what I'm writing at length; I'll stop at that word and think "This should go one of two ways......fuck it" and I just go with whatever looks good. Lmao

I'm a fuckin' writer; I should know this shit.

In my defense, though, spell-check tends to correct me as I go, without pointing out to me which flaws I've made. Perhaps the technology has become a bit TOO convenient, eh?

Very true. Your near-obsessive grammar-naziism has given me a wake-up call. lol
