A Jane Austen “Did you know?”

February 4, 2009

Jane Austen was a just as bad a speller as I am. She didn’t have spell check to fall back on. She once misspelled one of her teenage works as “Love and Freindship” and is infamously known to have spelt scissors as scissars. I have to say that this makes me like her even more.
