Why do several posters consistently type "the" as "teh?"

[en.wikipedia.org...]

"Besides being an alternate spelling of the, teh also has grammatical properties not generally applied to the; in general, it is used somewhat like an intensified "the". It can be used with proper names, as in "teh John"; compare the usage of the definite article in Greek: ο Ιωαννης (o Ioannes), literally "the John"."

Also:

* In the Malay language, Teh means tea.
* Teh is a Chinese surname [1], [2]

Beacause I type with two fingers and very quickly with two fingers. My left hand hits the e a milisecond before the right hits the h, thus producing teh instead of the. And then I am too lazy or too preoccupied to notice and go back and fix it. But that is just me.

In Danish the (alternatively te) means tea.

Always willing to add to the confusion. ;)

A number of people type OPD when they meant ODP too.

Just don't go eating any MRSA bars, right?

Does anyone have any common typos?

I type Japanse almost everytime I want to type Japanse.

Damn. Did it again.

When the second letter of a word starting with a capital is an 'a', I invariably wind with a captial 'A'. Fro example, PArt 3, my name is SAm and I am form Sydney.

I can't type filed or field - always back to front.. sheffiled, wakefiled. Can't seem to get teh symbiosis between finger and brain for that key combo.

I do it a lot. I wrote it off as one hand types faster than the other.

Take care,

Yep you can spot his posts by the teh's

Years ago I had a brainy friend who was an English major at Yale. He used to always drop "ain't" into conversations.

Yeah, but did he split his infinitives. :)

"teh hawt" appears 900 times in Google. Never once in regard to me.

I don't get this.
Do you have to be American to get this?

Even if you don't have a perfect grasp of our language I wouldn't feel too bad. Most of us have a less than rudimentary grasp of your North American languages like Sioux and Iroquai.

In that you presumably have the advantage over us.

I dont know why I do this, I do type really fast and I guess I dont pay attention to what Im doing, odd thing is though I dont do this with many if any other words.

Sorry all.

No Essex Boy, you don't do it with ANY other words... which makes it odder. :)

I thought maybe it was some gang symbol or the way "the" is spelled in an obscure language. Or that you (and a few others here) had new, really kewl, speed keyboards.

Actually it is an obscure language. I'll have to tell my sons to compliment girls at school with an "teh hawt" and see what happens.
