    More of a grammatical error/confusion, but "its" and "it's."

    "It's" is a contraction of the words "it" and "is".

    Whereas "its" refers to possession, and though normally an apostrophe is used to indicate possession, it's not used in this case.

    "Occurrence" is one of the most mispelled words.  I actually had to look it up in the dictionary right before I posted it here.  Two C's and two R's every time.

    Judgment has been misspelled as judgement so many times it may soon be accepted to use judgement. At least my spell checker likes both. Now who is the judge of that?
