I need a list of all those words we can't remember the correct spellings for - like "misspell"
scarey? or scary? (as in frightening)
necessary? or neccesary?
some of these I have to look up over and over and still can't remember - so I need a list to put on the wall next to my computer - please help!
recieve or receive
believe or beleive
fearfull or fearful
Maybe a trick for "necessary" is to keep in mind that "c" comes before before "s" in the alphabet, and that 1 comes before 2 (numbers-wise). So - 1 "c", 2 "s's".
although or all though?
friend or freind?
sleepyness? or sleepiness?
receive - i before e except after c
Hope that helps
nome or gnome
ralwus or walrus
meaga or meega or mega
maybe omeaga, or is it omega
meeger pickins I'd sey
discreet or discrete
(or indiscreet, more applicable here in the forums:-)
tyre or tire
color or colour
analyse or analize
govenor, I always get it wrong, I believe it is governor.
I always have to spell check it to get it right.
its really funny how often I see stuff all over the internet misspelled in really creative ways and start wondering if people are doing it on purpose to get attention or if they just don't care.
and then when I start to make my list, I can't remember most of them!
Cantaloupe or cantalope? Ahh, the red wavy line tells me 'a' is correct!
This is a wonderful way to limber up the mind. I always try two
words that sound the same but mean different things, like: mean,to and two, watt and what, blue and blew, raise and raze. You get the drift. I confess to being a bit OCD so this is one of the ways to get control of my mind. - Barbra-Lee -
These are commonly used incorrectly:
there, their, they're
Conscience, relatable (is that how you spell it?), necessary inconvenience
Hay, let me tell you a storey
about a mind gone deft.
Stupiditey is cleaver
leaving inteligese beereft.
So some my call me crazey
with the way I spill.
My leters poor onto the paper
and they have there own will.
I never mint to misspel
and too some they will sea
it is not my intint
to color with literery indigency.
Yes when i tipe
my paige is full of red lines.
She said it is oky
it is what it deefines.
So sintax is my weekness
and at speling Im no guroo.
So I say Im sorey
as I scratch in pane while looking at yew.
crap, and I was going to write a satire on this very subject, it looks like you very much got there first and did it so well that i am not sure I can better it.
I can never spell and always mix up conscious vs conscience.
I've noticed that disappoint is often spelt with two s's, too.
I spell OK, but OK is pretty bad for someone who used to be a "Contender" for the title. I'm less concerned with the rules than I am sounding like I'm half literate. Spelling is becoming a lost art. I glad if I can just get a point across.
though, through, throughout, and thought all get confused with each other quite often.
As do quite, quit, and quiet.
I was having a problem with 'maintenance' last night. I wrote 'maintainance', but knew it looked wrong. The dictionary didn't help me either, because I didn't know how to spell it.
Hmmm - then a page on Hubpages told me HP was down for 'maintenance' and the problem was solved, except I'd already posted my message using 'repairs etc.'.
I find the more I think of how to spell a word, the more confused I become.
I always get mixed up with how many m's or r's are in tomorrow for some reason...Right now I'm reading from the dictionary
Practise and practice, licence and license.
And I am still hanging on to my Brit spellings of organise, and socialise, and apologise, and anything-ise. I think I'm in a club with a dwindling membership
perhaps but those of us who are left are more golden for our rarity.
Oh, I like that jaggedfrost, more golden I'm cheered, very cheered.

As we all are living very busy lives, no longer do we plan as many meals as we used to. After a long week, my wife and have deemed Friday our "take out" night as far as dinners go. We have a few favorites, but our favorite, is a few taco trucks here in town.

What makes us humans crave to have just one partner for life?I just read an article about those who have open marriages and the beliefs about them and I got to thinking. What is it that we are really craving by being with just one person forever? Not saying I agree or disagree with open marriages....
