Frequent Internet Spelling Mistakes

I think I'm going to make this a regular feature. Here's one that's been bugging me. Note the spelling:

This is Voilà:

Note: It is very difficult to illustrate "voilà." It's a French expression which means "there it is."

This is a Viola:

It's a musical instrument slightly larger and lower in pitch than a violin.

Listen, you don't even need to include the accent, just please don't mix up your vowels. I'm not trying to be some kind of grammar Nazi, everyone makes typos. I'm trying to correct people who simply don't know the difference.


  1. Not the first one I would have chosen, but one that annoys me regardless.

  2. Can we look forward to moral/morale?
