It's clearly in terms where it's meant to be "he's", too. And they do it multiple times and I've seen it from multiple people. I guess I dont understand. And it really fucks up my inner dialogue when I'm reading posts. ☹️
i. e.: "his going to be mad at me"
It's so cute that everyone is getting so huffy about this question. I'm just wondering if people think it's legitimately proper to write "his" instead of "he's", because English isn't their first language and that's what they were taught for some reason.
Sit down and re-evaluate how sensitive you are if you think I'm bashing them because I'm an overly curious girl.
I never noticed this before - I wonder if it is not some mad auto correct - Strangely I don't notice it as much as you, I find that I read language by its sounds more than anything and often get stuck on spelling a word thinking it doesn't sound right. English is my first language but I have always struggled with spelling. One final thought I understand your question just curiosity, sometimes a thing gets in my head and I just have to ask about it,
Probably the same reason why people get brought and bought mixed up "I brought a hair straightener" when it should be "I bought a hair straightener" and even than and then are used wrong too "and than she said she was here but wasn't" should be "and then she said she was here but wasn't" I guess some people just aren't educated or can't remember or just don't want to accept they are saying things wrong. Who knows, but it does annoy me and I think it's fine to be annoyed by it, just like it's okay to not be bothered by it, we all have our opinions and things that irk us :)
The first thing I assume is that English isn't their first language, and the sounds of the 'e' and the 'i' are the same to them, so that is what they type. It does mess up how I read something knowing the difference between the two, though.
