Topic: most commonly seen misspellings ?

"Hi,what does n do in a column and why is egg pronounced different when compared to Egypt?"

From what I understand the /G/ sound in Egypt and all other words that have the same /G/ sound is due to the origin of the word. Most of these words are from French or other languages. Words that are originally English are pronounced like the /g/ in egg. Not 100% on this one, though. For example - garage and garbage... No idea how to explain this one. reason that they're both of French origin and the French use both /g/ sounds????????

Spelling: its vs. it's and their/there I see all the time. The phonetic spelling of English words drives me crazy too. I blame it on instant messaging. People are in a hurry to be lazy!

Topic: In-Text Citation Format Question

If the question mark is part of the quote it should be placed within the quotation marks. A period should go at the end of the citation.

I always thought that you could just give a slight wave and bow to acknowledge your mistake.

I grew up with it too, and I passed it on to my own son. Maurice Sendak ( Illustrator of Little Bear) wrote and illustrated it. It has been critically acclaimed for its illustration technique. I especially like the fact that as Max's imagination grows, the illustrations begin to cover more and more of the page, then retreat again when he returns to the "real" world. Movie huh? is it animated?
