Just because I have nothing better to do at work, I have decided to start counting all of the "mispellings" (w's for either r's or l's, as in dwagon or gobwin). I will then list all of the appropriate uses of the letters (r's for r's, l's for l's). From there I will post percentages of "mispellings". I don't think anyone else will be interested in this, but I'm going to do it anyway.

NOTE: "Mispellings" is in quotes because I realize that is their intended spelling. Also, I am a huge fan of Erfworld (note avatar and signature) and this is to point out the rediculousness of many arguments against the comic. Enjoy.


As of comic 14:
w's for l's: 2
l's for l's: 162
Percentage (w>l vs total): 1.2195%
w's for r's: 8
r's for r's: 156
Percentage (w>r vs total): 4.8780%
total w's for l's or r's: 10
total appropriate uses of l's or r's: 318
Percentage (total w>l or r vs totals): 3.0488%

Feel free to double check my numbers. I'm sure I've missed some. I do not count words not written in speech bubbles (such as the music lyrics from Erfworld 14 or the 1337 speak from the orlies).

Some people just like to complain.... The w's for l's and r's give Erfworld a sense of it being something else, not the default high fantasy comedy comic, but something all its own.
