Spelling and Grammar Explained

Just come across The Oatmeal site. There's lots of fun stuff there, but there is also some handy explanations of spelling and grammar, e.g.:

* Ten words you need to stop misspelling

* How to use a semicolon

* How to use an apostrophe

* When to use i.e. in a sentence

There's also a spelling / grammar test you can take.

That's good stuff, i.e., stuff I can use in everyday life. The semi-colon, e.g., is especially problematic. I don't want to appear to be a loser!

Oh, nice! I can use this (cause I screw these up regularly)... sigh...

Most halfway decent writers should never misspell any of those, on that link you gave. But there are two words I almost always have to think about: neccesarily and ocassionally. Woops, did I do it again?
