Phonetic spelling with an ocker accent on Corin Dam road

By johnboy - 3 March 2012 28

One of our spies has sent in this intriguing roadside signage on Corin Dam road.

I’m sure it looked fine as an automated message.

Maybe it was done by the guy who sent out the emergency SMS about the Mitchell fire?

People there’s a market out there for automated signs with a built in spellchecker!!

Like Iphone’s spellchecker that will change debary to debate?

Possible debate on roads? 😀

Shouldn’t that be iPhone?

I tend to ignore marketing bastardisation of spelling 🙂

Reminds me of the one that was on Parkes Way during the Glenloch Interchange roadworks: “POLICE IN FORCE ROADWORKS SPEED LIMIT”.

Next time I saw it, IN FORCE had been changed to ENFORCE.

A built in spellchecker wouldn’t have helped that one.

For those who were never taught the whole-word method, the current concept taught in primary schools are “sight words”…

ACT Police have just advised on Twitter that “Tree fallen on Sutton Road and a single vehicle accident, 8km nth of Quialigo turnoff.”

These spelling and gramatical errors by authorities are just unbelievable.
