澳洲Australia property Spelling!!! | Sydney


在澳大利亚 The pool at of an IP needs to be resurfaced (or so the pool doctor says), the cost was estimated to be $10K ($10,000), after recoverying from my impresssion of a cat coughing up a fur ball, it just seems far too much. Its just a standard poo I need some advice regarding a property purchase. Property - semi-detached house Bedrooms - 2 Condition - average needs internal reno to modernise Street - one of the best in suburb Location - excellent Close to schools - yes Transport - 50m


OK I've officially had enough of reading poor ad copy on real estate ads!
My two pet peeves are "sort after location" instead of "sought after" and the classic " don't loose the opportunity" rather than the correct "lose".... I know not everyone in real estate is a terrific speller but come on, in this day and age of spell-checkers galore when did it become so hard for professionals to at least double-check their ads?!

I found this great link to Oatmeal's posters for those challenged by spelling- it's quite amusing http://theoatmeal.com/comics/misspelling

My pet peeves are- your you're

With practice, practise. Depending whether the grammar check is English or American as to whether it corrects it or not.

And what's the go with people writing -prolly (as in- I prolly shouldn't say this)? Do they really think that's a word? I've seen it a bit lately.

House & granny flat with duel income. :rolleyes:

Easiest "rule" with loose & lose is that 'lose' loses an 'o'.

Oh man, this. So many people on this site don't know the proper use of each one, it's disturbing. Also, poor spelling is rife on here as well.

Yes! I couldn't agree more. :mad: Poor spelling/grammar drives me nuts.

Many years ago when I was interviewed for a job in a real estate office, the boss asked me the usual and expected question of, "Why should we employ you?" After I had rattled off the endless reasons why I would make 'employee of the year' (;)) I added, "...and because I know the difference between 'quite' and 'quiet' and I won't have your clients living in a 'quite' street". Despite my being a smart-****, I got the job :D.

Then and than. How do you get those wrong?

You don't see it too often, but when you do you wonder how.

Could some of these be dyslexic problems (or a brain thingy like left/right confusion), rather than having not learned them when they were young?

For all intensive purposes, their is no real problem with there spelling. I have brought many houses from agents who cant spell. Now calm down and have an expresso.

Got a val today with

properties are highly "sort' after in this location with strong demand and short supply.

After some recent valuer hassles in all Cities I can pass on the correct spelling as long as I get a val thats half way useable, AND they have a CURRENT view of the actual market.

Not being able to spell certainly doesn't mean a person is dumb though. I recall many people in high school who were in the bottom English class but who excelled at maths and science. Something about the different sides of the brain being for different things... :confused:?

Apparently skipping the crawling stage causes learning problems :confused:.

One Dr. in the US has a program of repetitive exercises to deal with brain glitches in bright children.

This is a kind of physio-neuro therapy which is based on western therapy.

Is Kinesiology much the same, or the same thing?

I don't know anything about either really, but would love to know a little about how it helped your son.
