In news today, no one knows how to spell and finally we’re all ready to admit it.
Hundreds of people decided this was a safe space, and responded with their own brain-fart words. Here were some of the most common:
Manouvre instead of manoeuvre
Hesistate instead of hesitate (not sure where that extra ‘s’ comes from but we appreciate your honesty)
Bureacracy instead of bureaucracy
Diarrehea instead of diarrhoea
Excercise instead of exercise
Harrassment instead of harassment
Seperate instead of separate
Brocolli/broccolli instead of broccoli
Defenitely instead of definitely
Restarant instead of restaurant
Privledge/privlege instead of privilege
Judgment instead of judgement
Rythm instead of rhythm
Wensday instead of Wednesday
Tounge instead of tongue
Guage instead of gauge
Entrpenruer instead of entrepreneur
Hors deoureibersldkfdkbvres instead of hors-d’oeuvre (which is a ridiculous word)
According to Oxford Dictionaries, some of the most difficult words to spell in the English language include:
Accommodate (acommodate, accomodate)
After reading that list, I feel like I know even less about spelling than I did to begin with.
Simply put, I will never, as long as I live, spell ‘diarrhoea’ correctly the first time. And it seems I’m definitely (defentely/definetely/definljtrng) not alone in that.
