One of the top blogging advices is to be careful about your spelling and grammar and you might say that this should be even more important on a data quality blog.
Unfortunately I have to admit that I’m not particularly good at that.
Perhaps I’m somewhat excused because I’m blogging in English and English isn’t my mother tongue. When I write articles and other stuff in English for companies I work for, there is always someone with English skills to catch my mistakes. But when I’m blogging, I’m on my own.
I do strive to get it right. I always write my texts in a word processor with English spell check and grammar on. But there is a lot of mistakes that aren’t corrected by the spell checker as use of a wrong word, forgetting a word and not concatenating words that should (or might) be a compound word.
Occasionally folks are kind to help me by saying that I should use another word instead of some rare word I have found in an English dictionary.
So, not at least to the subscribers on this blog, who gets my first takes, please forgive my occasional bad spelling, grammar and odd words. I’m constantly thinking about continuous word quality improvement.
