People can write the most nonsensical things, and now they have computer technology to help them create linguistic lunacies. If a hundred chimpanzees were seated at computer keyboards, they would have difficulty matching the ridiculous stuff turned out by human hands and minds with the assistance of their reliable "smart machines".The Untied Stats on American: And Other Computer Assisted Writing Errors takes playful yet serious swipes at some of the misleading, erroneous, and just plain hilarious things that get past careless proofreaders and their trusty spelling checkers. Author William Carroll illustrates what can happen to the written word when oblivious proofreaders allow their computers to do their proofreading and editing."Caress" drivers, or maybe even "carless" ones, who believe sex education should be taught in "pubic" schools, even those with "Cadillacs" on their eyes and symptoms of "old-timers" disease can learn something of value from Carroll's The Untied Stats on American. Nonetheless, they should all be careful not to "wine up laughing they're assets off wile their during it."The real intention of this tasty treatise is to make computer users more aware of the critical need for proofreading while keeping their brains in gear. Artificial intelligence is no replacement for the human mind, the most efficient computer imaginable.
