I want to compile a database for a new language that I am call [b][i]Webonics[/i][/b]. It will consist of words that are commonly misspelled on the internet. Here are a few that I can think off of the top of my head.

teh=the
ti=it
And the ever popular:
[i]loose[/i] in place of [i]lose[/i]

Submit your favorites too.

prolly - probably
yur - your

1. muzzle break instead of muzzle brake
2. "I would of...." instead of "I would have.."

bunghole, here's my list from looking through a month's worth of e-mail from coworkers:

dose = does
there = they're
there = their
hes = he's
comp = computer
"checken in" = checking in
i = I
im = I'm
its = it's
soo = so
sooo = so
soooo = so
brandnew = brand new
luv = love
thanx = thank you
storie = story
sup = what's up
wuz up = what's up
asl = ?
'salted = assaulted
ill = I will
doit = do it
doin = doing
den = then
wanna = want to
ne = anyone?
board = bored
nuttin = nothing
hole = whole
brb = be right back?
dont = do not
crazy = (null, but inserted into random places in sentences)
anythang = anything
wat = what
promis = promise

I still wonder how these most of these guys filled-out police reports.  "The 'spect was doin nuttin den boy said wuz up and salted him.  Dats da hole storie."  The sad part is, our e-mail client has a spell checking program.z
