I am glad that when the Brakes Broke your DW didn't Break anything!

Too many spell the way the speak.

I remember my freshman year at the University of San Francisco in my first Business Admin class. Our professor insisted that we write a paper each week and if he found any misspellings, erasures or strike overs he would draw a red line at that point and issue an "F" on the paper. We also had to learn the first and last names of all 60 people in the class... including the proper spelling.

His pitch was that we were going out into the business world and needed to learn the importance of written communications. He said that, if we didn't, we would someday misspell someone's name and it would make us look very bad. It's stuck with me.

You are prolly right!

Now where did this come from and what does it mean? Prolly???? How about 'probably' ? I am seeing this more and more. Perhaps do spell like they speak?

Maybe you should tell the publisher of the Oxford Dictionary that prolly is not a word.

I've looked in several dictionaries, have the American Heritage College edition laying on my desk and none of them list "prolly". The definition your reference provides merely illustrates my point. At best it is slang and is merely the incorrect use of(lazy or can't spell) "Probably". Heck I have to override my spell check to just type "probably". LMAO!

Now don't get me started on "Sup?" in place of What is up? (Homie).
