(I was desperate for drills this week so I had my intermediate writing class writing these little biographies in paragraph form.  For the most part, they caught all the mistakes although the “wives” issue [put in simply to remind them about the singular/plural noun difference] let to a discussion of “why can’t he have two wives?” and “isn’t it OK to have a wife and a girlfriend?” and “in my country, we can have two wives” and at that point, I just cut it off and moved on!  I hadn’t anticipated getting myself into that!)

(And yes, Jon, I realize you aren’t a hall director any more and yes, Chris I realize you aren’t technically an accountant but I’m a teacher – I have creative license!)

    My kids mis-spell “girl” as “gril” ALL THE TIME!!!! Across the board. I think it’s because the vowel sound is an r-controlled vowel and so you to actually hear a “gr” sound at the beginning if you’re trying to sound it out. The advanced kids even do it. And yes, we’ll have to ask Chris where he found his baby grill! 🙂
