  • Spelt and spelled are both correct, just like theatre and theater are both correct. "Spelt" is more commonly used with British speakers.

  • Some spell checkers have a grammar check, you can try using that.

  • Doesn't really bother me. I know some women have babies on their lap, nursing, or are typing fast to get a response in and might mess up a word or two. I do it sometimes! I type 'of' instead of 'or'....silly mistakes like that. Now if there's a question and every other word is spelled incorrectly, it makes you wonder!

  • It depends. I can tell the difference between a typo and misspellings. The misspellings are a little maddening because all you have to do is use the editor and click spell check. Plus, I taught English for 17 years before I started teaching math.
