April 25, 2007 - Professinal

Good secretaries have probably checked their calendars this morning and already know that today is their day: Administrative Professionals Day. While it's doubtful that secretary was too hard to spell (though some may be thinking of stationery, which—when it means stuck in one place, not going anywhere—should be spelled stationary), it was more likely just due time for a new euphemism. Since we already blogged Adminstration back in October, we're going to concentrate here on the many ways there are to miskey professional. My own OPAC sported half a dozen records with the typo Proffes* as well as Professinal* and Professon* (which appear in the "high probability" section of the Ballard list) and Professioi* and Professoi* from the "moderate probability" section. Take a letter, if you will, but be sure to put it back where it belongs.
