Chapter 31. Spelling

With easy access to spelling checkers in word processing programs, is there really a need for an administrative assistant to be concerned with spelling? For some people, running spell check on their word processing document takes the place of a good proofread. Computerized spelling checkers are indeed useful to any writer. However, there are many words that may appear to be correctly spelled according to the word processor's spelling checker, when in reality they are incorrectly spelled for the particular context, or the wrong word has been used entirely. For example, a spelling checker cannot tell the usage differences between there, their, and they're.

Thus, there is a need for basic spelling skills. This chapter focuses on the most common spelling rules that any good administrative assistant should know.
