Further VS. Farther should be on that list too. Further down the road, as if in literal distance. Farther in school, as if on to graduate school, etc. I think.

you can start with the word "nickle" in the title of this post, try "nickel" next time

Also, irregardless is not a word (I don't think), but if it were, it would presumably mean the opposite of regardless, so you shouldn't use it if you mean "regardless".

And literally means the opposite of figuratively. So don't say you're literally sick to death of people who use the wrong words unless you're literally puking your guts out on your literal death bed. Which would be kind of a strong response to grammar and vocabulary and stuff.

Hasn't this been posted before? Maybe I just remember it from looking at the Oatmeal.

No one ever mentions til, as in two more miles til we get there. People write till but til is short for until.

DuckBoy: There's a credit in the graphic itself, right at the top, under the title. No need to get pissy.

darkmagic: My browser *does* flag it as incorrect, but that's not particularly relevant. If we're looking for formality, try the dictionary - it isn't a standard English word.

This catches most of my pet peeve misspellings.

They didn't mention the people that write "quite" when they mean "quiet" though (the former means "very", while the latter means "making little or no noise"). That one bugs me and I see it surprisingly often.

Please credit TheOatmeal
Here, I'll even give you the link to the exact page on which this comic appears: Ten Words You Need to Stop Misspelling Now

He had altercations with funnyjunk, I'm sure he wouldn't have a problem fighting you guys.

Though I bet my pleas will fall on deaf ears...

@mykunter: Firefox, which says firefox is wrong unless capitalized, doesn't flag irregardless as wrong.

When I went to school, you had to know all this before you could advance to 4th grade.

Seen would have been correct if you used 'have before it. Saw is past tense; seen is past participle

Dead-Kittens: The word "seen" is the past participle of "see". It is often used with a form of "have," whether it be "have," "has," or "had." "Seen" should not be used by itself as a verb. You only use it if it's referring to a past event that is relevant to the current time.

I have seen it already.
When did you see it?
I saw it last week.
