A couple of months ago I shared with you a list of my 10 most commonly misspelled words. In doing so I realized how many other words out there I frequently get wrong without even knowing it. Here are some of them…
Calendar: I actually made a sign for calendars at a store I was working at and spelled it with an ‘er’ rather than an ‘ar’. I felt pretty foolish.
Cemetery: I always want to end this with an ‘ary’. If I had my druthers I’d change it for good in the dictionery dictionary.
Fiery: This is one seriously messed up word. Whoever decided a random silent ‘e’ made sense should be fierd fired.
Grateful: Clearly it’s not great to be greatful grateful because that would make too much sense.
Jewelry: You’d think because it’s made by a jeweler that there’d be an ‘e’ after the ‘l’.
Medieval: Even though everything about the MIDdle ages is MEDieval, it’s not spelled the same way.
Mischievous: Just too many vowels…
Privilege: Am I the only one who wants to put a ‘d’ in there somewhere?
Relevant: I constantly swap vowels in this one, too.
Sergeant: If only words were spelled the way they were pronounced!
Do any of these words constantly trip you up? What are some of the words that keep you running back to dictionary.com? I’d love to know.
