Definately. Definitely.

 

Gaurantee. Guarantee.

 

Are two of my top ones. I'll probably think of a few more later on.

 

So what are yours? laughing

i used to be a good speller, now it doesn't matter with spell check correcting all my mistakes. Like  simple maths , it's a dying art . Technology has a lot to answer forsmile

Every word that is not phonetically correct.

 

Totally joys being dyslexic with borderline dyspraxia. 

 

 

 

When the squiggly lines stop working, or i simply don't have the mental brain power level to shape up a word... I know i'm f*cked.

 

Often google is also my spellchecker, It has a far better hitrate at my garbled attempts.

 

 

 

*In this instance there are other factors at play, however this post took all of 3 spellcheck attempts to make.

These days, I am unsure if I cannot spell it, or if I cannot type it accurately!

 

I can't think of specific words just now. I recall being given lines at school to write out people because I kept getting it wrong. After writing it 1000 times, I never got it wrong again...! I still hear my 10 year old voice repeating "P-E-O-P-L-E" in my head though...!

 

Guarantee is a common one. I get round words like that by phonetics in my head - so writing guarantee is actually writing "Gwaar antee" like Guar gum.

 

Some have handy rhymes. Necessary - Never Eat Chips Eat Salmon Sandwiches And Remain Young for example.

I often get "gauge" wrong (guage) but thankfully I can tell that it looks wrong when I do.


Banana?

Printer. Only when typing it though.

 

 

 

Always comes out Pritner. And often my Surname - typing too fast and mucking up a couple of letters (the last four letters of my surname are all on the top row of the keyboard).

I always have such trouble with unfortunatently (correct: unfortunately). And interestingly some spell check algorithms don't always manage to correctly suggest 'unfortunately' for my attempts (Firefox just did though haha). Often I just type into DuckDuckGo and copy'n'paste the correct spelling into whatever app I'm using.
