  1. I tend make an effort to be as sagacious as I can regarding spelling and grammar. Although there are some words that I have been misspelling my whole life. One word that I continue to spell out incorrectly to this day is "exhist". :a6:

    Everyone's got one. What's yours?
  2. Spieck / Speick
  3. bear / bare & quiet / quite.[​IMG]

  7. Anything with two 'r's - referred, embarrassing, etc.
  8. Anything with ie or ei. That rule of "I before E except after C" really is unhelpful at best.

    I don't think that I have ever correctly spelled accessibility or businesses correctly by freehand either (or maybe that is iether...)
    Did I get my point accross?

  13. Remeber, I always forget the m.
  14. nite/tonite...

    lazy over two damn letters huh?

    but what i don't understand is given that when i type my computer tells me what is spelled wrong, and with the ease of a right click, it can be corrected, but on forums everywhere, no one bothers to fix their spelling errors...??

    the one slang term that is often misspelled that i don't get (and is a pet peave of mine) from folks is:

    :: siked :: as in "I am siked about the razor i just got at the antique shop"

    it's: "PSYCHED" !

    (sorry, always wanted to put that out there)
  15. I use Google Chrome which has a spell-checker plugin (multilingual). For example, I'd just written "multilanguage" and the spell checker marked it red and corrected it to "multilingual". Is it right? Is multilanguage really wrong? Who knows.

    :lol: I think you mean "peeve"
  17. Also, to be fair, whichever town drunkard signed off on the accepted spelling of "p-s-y-ched" was wrong in the first place.

    Fish and Potatoes for dinner?
  18. Not me personally but I always get annnoyed when folk misuse your and you're...

    It's the difference between knowing your sh*t
