A Few More Tips on Effective Spell Checking

Even though these online spell checkers are great, the manual check is still important.
Here are some time-proven tips that can help you improve your texts.

  • Relax and take it easy. Yes, you’ve got it right. Even if you feel that it’s the most important paper in your life. Even if you feel that it’s full of errors and misprints. Calm down. Close your eyes and count to 10 if necessary. If you are relaxed and balanced, you will proofread your paper much better.
  • Distraction for better concentration. We all know the good old advice to leave a paper for a couple of hours or even days before proofreading it. In real life, however, our deadlines don’t allow us doing something like this. The principle of “contrast shower” can help you then. Do something totally different than writing, to change the focus of your attention – call a friend, browse Facebook (for up to 10 minutes) – and only then get back to proofreading.
  • Play it safe. Every time you rack your brains trying to spell words that are too long, you can just use their simpler alternatives. For example, instead of writing a long and complicated word such as ‘ubiquitous’, you can always use the good old ‘widespread’ instead. And nothing bad happens. On the contrary, you save your own and your reader’s time.
