Re: When individuals misspell words because they type wrong letter on computer
Not really. I can type around 80 words per minute. My brain dictates and my fingers type. They just type what they "hear."
In any case, regardless of what you call it, those types of errors don't result from ignorance -- I surely know the difference between know and no, hear and here, etc., but they don't always come out right.
Then there are the errors that result from automatically typing familiar endings. For example, adding a G to a word that ends in IN, or adding a T to something that ends in AN, because -ing and -ant are such common endings that the fingers do it out of muscle memory. I'm not sure what to call that either.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
