“Poor spelling, incorrect grammar, lousy writing and poor oral presentation are all signs of illiteracy.”

So says Nick Corcodilos, author of the “Making Sen$e” column for PBS Newshour online.

He continues: “I don’t care what field you work in, how much you earn, or whether you’re a production worker or a vice president. The way you use language reveals who you are, how you think, and how you work. And that will affect your career profoundly. You can pretend otherwise, but you can also walk around buck-naked believing you’re invisible because you’ve got your eyes closed.”
