    Yes, I always misspell broccoli.  I just had to look it up to write this.  I mean, really... 2 "C"s but only 1 "L" in a word?  That looks terrible.

    I always have trouble with those double letter words too. Especially the ones where it seems like there could be 2 pairs of them, like necessary, commission, professor, etc.

    And I don't have trouble spelling it but I ALWAYS misstype becasue - see what I'm saying. It drives me nuts.

    I frequently misspell the word "availability."  I usually have spell checker tell me that it's not "availiablity."

    I have trouble with the word "foreign" (and for the record, I misspelled it here - and my computer corrected it.)  I don't know why, but it feels like there should be an "h" lodged in there somewhere, or I will forget the "e".  I've been tempted to have the word tattooed on my hand or something, it is the only word  with which I have this kind of problem.

    My word would be success and how it's spelled differently when you spell succeed. I always have to look at it and try to remember if its ccee or ce or cce. It confuses me from time to time.
