95%, so I must have got one "wrong". Probably "misspell" / "mis-spell", which are in fact both correct. As a linguist I consider myself a lot better informed than the microsoft spellcheck and grammar check: in the latter especially they are so ignorant that they do not understand the difference between formal and colloquial American english!

A leaflet dropped through my door the other day from a health spa advertising "loose body fat".

Regarding the spelling test: "There are a lot of people tweeting about silly things." No, there are many.
