In a recent post, I wrote the following:
Knowing how prone I am to mistypings and misspellings, I ran it through a spell checker. In addition to misspellings, my spell checker also checks for context errors; usually, in my opinion, incorrectly. In this case, it declared that convinced was wrong and the word I should be using was persuaded. I checked a dictionary and found that convinced does mean what I thought it did. But is there some subtle distinction here I’m missing?
