SPELL

Some of us see errors in spelling and sigh.  Others see errors in syntax or grammar and wince.  If you see such errors and get really mad, you might be interested in joining an organization called the Society for the Preservation of English Language and Literature (SPELL).  This is "an organization of people who love our language and are determined to resist its abuse and misuse in the news media and elsewhere."  SPELL is best known for its Goof Cards, bright yellow cards that members send to language offenders to inform and educate them.  SPELL also publishes a newsletter and sponsors a high school essay contest, with case prizes.  (spl)
