Editors Take Note: Lulu Has Solved the Homonym Problem

If you've been writing or editing for any length of thyme then you've probably encountered homonyms, and at one point or another you've probably accidentally typed your when you've meant you're. Good news: you're problems are at an end.

The self-pub service Lulu has decreed new spellings for many common homonyms. You can click on the image at left and see a few examples.

I think it's a great idea. Does anyone know how we can get these words into a dictionary?

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
