"I don't read"

There are homonyms of a sort that reveal the writer has only heard a word or phrase used and has never seen it written. The problem with this situation is the writer is using the word/phrase as a verbal placeholder and does not really understand what it means.

These are not typos or misspellings. These are failures caused by a lack of familiarity with the written language. The resulting misuse can be nonsensical or even have the opposite meaning from what was (presumably) intended.

And here's a two-fer: "This story remains me of Tricker Treating..."
