What words make the most common for spelling mistakes and how do you prevent yourself from doing so?
Just wondered what words people think are the worst words for being spelled wrong and what course of action is best to combat a pattern of making these same mistakes?
I don't know of any words that are notorious for being spelled incorrectly, but every so often I'll realize that there's a specific word I just can't seem to ever spell right. Whenever this happens I just make note of it and consciously (spell checked that, and now I know haha) look at the proper spelling. This is how I learned how to stop misspelling things like experience, independence, and apparently consciously, too.
There are two words I know how to spell two ways, but I can never figure out the usage.
Principal vs. principle (I do know that princiPAL is the headmaster because s/he is your PAL. Or so they say.) and
Affect vs. effect
If anyone has a clue to remembering these let me know. Please!
