Is it immanent or imminent? Top proofreading spot.

🔎 Most satisfying #proofreading spot of the day:

Immanent ➡️ imminent

⛔ Microsoft Word’s spellcheck did not recognise ‘immanent’ as being incorrect.

Why not?

💡 Because ‘immanent’ is a word.

It means “existing or operating within; inherent” (Google Dictionary definition).

But the author of this #gamelit novel wanted ‘imminent’ as in “about to happen”.

That’s why human judgement is such a vital stage in ensuring accuracy.

Pleased with that spot. Small things, eh! Easily pleased. 😊
