I've noticed this kind of mistake so much more often, WHY?

No such word as responce is there?!!

FabioTheWhisperingCat · 05/07/2008 16:23

Because some people are ignorant to the needs of the pedant.

Durr, I see what you mean now, no such word being the whole point! Yeah, winds me up too, as does loose instead of lose.

advise is to advise, advice is to give advice, surely responce is just a spelling mistake?

beaniesteve · 05/07/2008 16:27

Responce IS a spelling error, that's my point. People really do think that is how it is spelt, which is odd. Ditti Advise when used to mean Advice.
