Right vs. Wright

Wright = one that constructs or repairs something

Right = correct

That is all.

1. spelling and grammar are dead, the interweb killed them. I find it funny that most non-native speakers write better then native speakers.

2. try google.

3. thread moved to the Lounge in 3... 2...

4. there is no 4.

I thought about posting this in the Lounge, but I didn't think that the people posting here would see it. I think it's an important distinction because I keep thinking that maybe people mean "wrong" when they write "wright". Much like people that mistake right and left.

Of well.

nope. it's American politics so you should expect it to be backwards. right = wrong, left = right.

chicken wing = good thing.

That's a matter of preference and context.

And just because something is correct doesn't mean it's necessarily good, IMHO.

Different etymology altogether. "Wright" comes from an old English word that means worker. Sort of like the etymology of "Robot". Which makes it kinda cool of course, especially when sung through a vocoder. Am I wright or am I wright? I'm certainly not rong!
