The “e” is silent, not invisible

We ar in for mor of the sam.

The word “conjure” is very descriptive and the use of it in any written piece — online or otherwise — would bring kudos from me if it weren’t for the fact that this author dropped the silent “e” at the end of the word. Since this was part of an online article, and that’s where I find most of the grammar, punctuation and spelling mistakes for this blog, I fear we’re headed straight into the world of phonetic spelling, if we’re aren’t there already.

Since I’m on this topic, I will also add that, while many people feel it is necessary to include the word “up” after “conjure”, it can be left out without harming the sentence at all.
