  • Sometimes it's a typo that the user made that slips by spellcheck.

    Other times it's spellcheck that gets carried away and changes the word.
    In the latter case, I call those words spellcheckos. (plural like geckos).

  • Wordo is the work I adopted during Wordnik's Kickstarter campaign. To me, the definition of "wordo" is the correct spelling of a real word that's used incorrectly in the context. The "wordo" will pass spellcheck, but doesn't make sense when read carefully. For example, "coach potato" instead of "couch potato" or "meeting invoice" instead of "meeting invite" or the simple "he" instead of "the."
