Sometimes you need a spell checker not only for your computer but for real life as well.

The English language has gone through some interesting evolutions, and one of them is the creation of Contronym.
A Contronym is a word with two opposite meanings. Here are some interesting examples:
1. Bolt: secure (“He bolted the door”) but also to run away (“He got so afraid he bolted for the door”).
2. Off : could be either to stop (“turn that music off!”) or to start (“the alarm went off”).
3. Left: Remained (“I left you some apples“), or departed (“Elvis has left the building”).
4. Rock: An immobile mass of stone, being stable (“You can count on him, he’s a rock) or or a shaking or unsettling movement or action (“The mother rocked her baby to sleep”).
5. Dust means “to remove from” (“Please dust off this vase”) and “to add to” (“Dust the cake with cocoa”.
6. Can means “to save” (“She will can the peaches”) and “to discard” (
He’s about to can the worker”)
7. Strike – hit (“the empire strikes back”) and also miss (in baseball)
If you have more interesting examples- let us know!

Here’s a good reason why you need Ginger for your browser: it will prevent these mistakes.
Ginger can now be used on Facebook, Twitter, Gmail and many more, and will ensure you don’t mix up “you’re” and “your”.
