comment Noun to describe a “typo-filled” letter
If you really want to spell it out, refer to the misspellings as fat-finger mistakes. (I modified my answer accordingly.)

comment More emphatic term for “Expert”?
To paraphrase a line I once read: "An expert knows a great deal about a subject. A scholar knows everything there is to know about a subject."

comment Why is 'spatial' written with a t instead of a c?
A better question to ask might be why space is written with a "c" when it derives from the Latin spatium. According to Oxford, the English word space is a shortening of the Old French espace. It's actually spatial that's more "true" to its Latin root.
