It has been revealed that Jane Austen couldn't spell, wrote in a regional accent and didn't have sufficient punctuation!
That puts this piece of her own writing in perspective:
"Henry Tilney: It appears to me that the usual tyle of letter-writing among women is faultless except in three particulars.
Miss Morland (?): And what are they?
Tilney: A general deficiency of subject, a total inattention to stops, and a very frequent ignorance of grammar.'
Not to mention spelling, no doubt
I mean, she wrote 'recieve'.
Just liked to mention it because it was nice to know And they are going to put free Austen manuscripts online via the British library. Would like to see it for myself.
