    First advize then advise

    PR spelled the word 'advise' incorrectly in ALL of her exemplars, both right and left handed. She spelled it 'advize'.

    The RN author spelled it correctly.

    If PR wrote the RN, then the question is raised: How did she spell 'advise' in the RN and then later spell 'advize' in her exemplars?

    There seem to be two choices for RDI. Either she did it on purpose, or she forgot how to spell 'advise' between the time she wrote the RN and the time she did the exemplars.

    Do you for some reason feel that PR doing this intentionally is inconceivable??
    Consider this HOTYH, we all know words that really jump out as glaring mistakes when we see others use them incorrectly, mistakes that we would never make. While some of my favorites are not spelling mistakes, as much as word usage issues, I would strongly consider throwing them in if I was trying to be deceptive.
    If I could, I would use “irregardless”, there instead of their, possibly use Canadian/British word variants such as colour instead of color, behaviour instead of behavior etc. The English language is a goldmine of possibilities.
    If the opportunity of advise/advize came up, why not take it?

    .

    If PR wrote 'colour' in both her right and left exemplars, and the RN had the word 'colour' in it, that would be something. A distinctive or rare spelling or application of a word.

    Too bad there aren't any of those.

    Instead, the wife of a multi-millionaire businessman not too surprisingly can spell business in both her right and left exemplars with no problem, but the RN author clearly spells it 'bussiness'.

    Not only that, PR seemed determined to misspell advise in both right and left exemplars, while the RN author spelled it correctly.

    I just hope you know how ridiculous it sounds to make the claim that PR misspelled deliberately, sometimes in the RN and sometimes in her exemplars. And the speed with which this explanation was dreamed up to account for this information when it was first learned. And the obvious lack of proof or corroborating evidence that PR ever deliberately misspelled anything at any time. It truly is circular reasoning at its finest.

    Can RDI find one instance where PR was inconsistent in her spelling of a word?

    I’m sorry that you think PR is a moron, incapable of taking the most elementary steps to save her "behind".
    What would you have her do, replicate the ransom note perfectly???

    Nobody even noticed the 'advize' thing for years. It is too subtle for your idea to be plausible. How could it be seen as a 'behind saver' when nobody even notices?

    She would've been taking major steps backwards to save her behind by simply writing the note. JBR basement crime scene was enough evidence of intruder.

    Would you save your behind by writing a 350 word, 1500 character ransom note and leaving it at the scene of a capital child murder?

    I didn't think so.

    Equally ridiculous is the idea that someone who lived there would EVER do this. Or that LE would even consider they would.

    It’s down to state of mind. It doesn’t matter what we think or what we would do, it’s what PR thought would be effective.

    Actually, HOTYH, I noticed the 'advize' thing because some buffoon on the forums started claiming that that was the British spelling of 'advise.'

    I'm with Cynic: Patsy was a very clever woman and it is typical of IDI that they don't show her the respect of acknowledging that she had the brains to execute the cover-up and keep it covered up.

    Hi hotyh....

    hmmm .... easy for someone who rarely misspells to place common errors within a text. For sure, as cynic comments, easier for an American or Brit, spelling being fixed/distinct.

    PR as rn writer, diabolical misspeller?,
    maybe the placement of the z, was an attempt to further distance herself from the original 'patterned' misspellings, and to illustrate that PR errors of habit center on the z,c,s combos?

    hotyh?
    how many spelling errors within the approx 400 word rn?

    IMO she misspelled it because she was panicked.It happens to me too.

    Actually, the fact that she had a degree in journalism strongly suggests she deliberately misspelled "advize" in the exemplars.

    Hi Tadpole. Wrt your comments about mispellings etc, have you ever read 'Gaudy Night' by Dorothy L. Sayers? It's one of her Lord Peter Wimsy novels and it relates to a posion letter campaign at one of the first women's colleges at Oxford University. There is extensive discussion of this type of thing in that novel. It's sort of apt here because the poison pen in the book misspelt some easy words but got some hard ones right and also quoted extensively from The Iliad etc which seemed to point to someone wanting to look dim bit being unable to hide their intelligence and education.

    Your comments about spelling differences between US and British English are interesting because it's so easy to start getting used to the 'other' spelling. After a while on here, I usually go over to some English sites and I invariably spend a second or two wondering why everyone has started misspelling words like 'criminal defence.' Also, within Britain, there are variations where people in some places use the US spelling. For example, it was a tradition among Oxford graduates to use 'z' instead of 's' (which coincidentally is a clue in an Inspector Morse novel) and people in the West Midlands use 'mom' instead of 'mum.' There aren't that many words in the RN that are typically US/British but expressions like 'Law Enforcement' are more US than British.

    Agree. Plus the carels used in the note point to someone with training in journalism, proof-reading etc.

    In reality though, this is only what you are imagining PR thought would be effective, isn't it?

    And, then stating as if it were known fact?
