July 17, 2007 - Acompany

Acompany for Accompany or possibly "A Company" is on the B or High Probability list at Typographical Errors in Library Databases. Checking WorldCat this morning, we find more than 70 hits for this typo. Since it appears to be a word that people tend to use because they don't know the correct spelling, we would have expected a very high hit rate in Google. It is, in fact, just over 100,000. Adding to the normal list of reasons why you should examine any record before changing it—there is at least one legitimate company name for this word: Acompany.com.
