Perusing OED.com as is my wont, I am astonished to discover that of the thirteen ‘Common Misspellings’ I listed in January, every one of them has since been silently corrected. And not sic’d either but actually retyped, showing that they were indeed typos: ‘her curiousity’ is now ‘her curiosity’, ‘occurs immediatly’ is ‘occurs immediately’, etc. It’s almost as if the editors of the OED have seen my private journal, but that’s impossible.
