What's telling with the spelling...?

Post by missbeetle on 14.07.15 6:29

Google search results for 'Madeleine McCann' gave me this :


The Telegraph article's own headlines look like this :



What's with the dissing? Any ideas?

Dwelling on the spelling...

Perhaps, Tony...


I'd have hoped it'd be short for 'discuss'.


Another odd headline spelling mistake which has remained uncorrected :

Dis or diss is slang for disrespect. "Don't diss your elders" for example.

The McCanns could not of course be accused of doing that to anyone, says she with tongue firmly in cheek.

Just a word processing mistake IMO. The word `disappearance` was initially included somewhere in the sentence then changed and that bit missed.

`Diss` was used before the Jamaican `rap/respect` slang became integrated into our language - it merely meant dismissed.

UNQUOTE


According to this site,  

http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2013/08/5-hip-hop-slang-words-made-oxford-english-dictionary/

five hip-hop words have made it into the Oxford English Dictionary: 

Bling (tat clothing and jewellery)

Jiggy (dance in a sexually provocative manner)

D is next to S on the keyboard.
it is possible it should be did and not dis.

WE are well aware of typos espcially with the daily mail, maybe the Telegraph wants to join the party dance
