Hello, Dannyman. I have removed your recent addition to the page Hypercorrection. In the linguistic literature I am familiar with hypercorrection describes a speech phenomena or (rarely) a reflection of such a phenomenon in writing. The type of word processor over-correction you describe would not meet this definition. Could you please cite (or else direct me to) a published source calling auto-correction a type of hypercorrection? Thanks, Cnilep (talk) 23:25, 5 July 2011 (UTC)
