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?
