Subject: RE: BS: Do small errors in books, film &c matter

We watch Foyle's War and laugh at the inaccuracies. Like Will we too wondered where Milner received his miracle treatment that enables him to walk ( and occasionally run) since he lost part of his leg. In the forties !!!!

I also cringe at many period films that contain current word usage and phraseology. Absolutely is one overused word in such films.

I also read a lot and I find that nowadays there are many typing and spelling errors creeping into the texts. I suspect that computers and word-processing have much to do with it.
