Survey shows that millennials are more irked by spelling errors than older groups

A survey by Dictionary.com appears to show that, while older generations might consider themselves the last bastions of correct spelling and grammar, almost three quarters of 18-34 year olds are irked by grammar and spelling slips on social media – higher than any other age group.

According to the online Harris Poll in early August, as reported by The Associated Press, 80 percent of American adults consider themselves good spellers, but they may be overestimating their abilities – as 71 percent say they often find spelling mistakes in correspondence from others.

Women notice more errors than men (three-quarters of women say they find errors in other people’s writing compared to two-thirds of men). Bookbrowse News About Books, Authors, and Book-Related Topics
