    I don't know if this gets to anyone else...

    Pinnochio
    Carrousel
    Dalmations

    are spelled "Pinocchio", "Carousel" and "Dalmatians"

    I'm guessing eyore knows that "Eeyore" is spelled "Eeyore" and that it's a conscious choice.

    Grammar Lesson

    Adding an 's' to the word 'lesson' transforms it into a plural word suggesting that there would be more than one lesson.

    Yes, I am quite aware that the donkey from Winnie the Pooh spells his name EEyore.
    It was quite deliberate and not a spelling error (plus the fact that Eeyore was taken on most of the sites may have a bearing on it);D
    It's pronounced eyore and not eeeeey-or (short e)
    Notice my avatar isn't Eeyore for the same reason (not than Pinocchio has any particular significance apart from the fact it's my son's first ride when he goes to the parks).
    On the subject of spelling, don't forget that many words are spelled in an odd manner if one compares UK and US spellings.
    Favourite comes up as a spelling error when typed here but comes up correct when spelled favorite.
    There's also a few words we (in the UK) use an "s" for and the spell-checker wants a "z"
    It doesn't help :)
    I do agree that the Disney names should be branded in our memories.
    Then again, we are Disney fans which doesn't require a college degree.
    I would still understand if someone wrote "pinokeyo". ::)

    There's that funny 5/6 year old kid who was looking at a Disneyland Resort Paris poster the other day and who exclaimed:

    "Oh, Mickey!  Oh, McDonald!"

    I did not correct him! :)

    Bill, which color font shall we use for this phonetic approach?

    Believe me, I have read worse than that from people who don't have English as their first language (and some who do). :)
