Tricky Words to Spell

Ask a Question

What are some words you find tricky to spell properly or some words you thought you were spelling right only to realise you weren't spelling it correctly all along

For a long time I always thought Maltesers were spelt Malteasers .. and quite recently I learnt to spell definitely properly.. I thought it was spelt definately πŸ™ˆ

My science teacher would tell us he remembers to spell successful correctly by thinking that the two C's are like having two collars and the double S is for two socks .. and he taught us the same ☺️

I have dyslexia so always find spelling really hard, sometimes just the simplest of words I struggle with. Over the years I have developed strategies to help me get my spelling correct or if in doubt just google what I think it is.

I am afraid I am a bit of a pedant about spelling. I hate seeing words with spelling errors but I can't help that anymore than those who cannot spell. Predictive text is a nightmare for me as it takes my correctly spelled words and changes them into something totally different.

Leeann I would do that but it is handy when texting and the correct word comes up to save you typing it. Phone is not too bad, it's this kindle fire that gives more problems.

I know what that's like, but it's ultimately not a big issue. At most, it could change 'of' to 'it' and 'than' to 'then' though other than that it doesn't screw up what a person is writing (normally).

Medical words and those who have 'ae' instead of just one.
