    Stupid words <_<

    http://www.d-e-f-i-n-i-t-e-l-y.com/

    The correct spelling is definitely.
    Not definately.
    Not definatly.
    Not definantly.
    Not definetly.
    Not definently.
    And certainly not defiantly.
    The correct spelling is definitely.

    I had to google how to spell definitely, I was spelling it defenitely and my spell check thingy for chrome was only giving me to option to change it to definitively.
    Whats words, if any, do you mess up a lot when spelling them?

    "Fortunately" and "Noticeable".

    Fortunately, I typed both out correctly the first time, when I made this post. Guess it's noticeable to oneself when a conscious effort is made to spell correctly.

    Oddly enough, words like weird and thief seem to get me the most frequently. That i and e. ¬_¬

    I agree with the I and E thing, some that get me are piece and niece.
    In my head I'm always thinking I before E as I'm spelling it, but usually still muff it up.

    This one time when I was younger, I saw this rant about common misspellings and this was one of the images in it:


    Needless to say, I never misspelled the word "weird" again. ;__;

    With words like these I have to say the word differently in my head than I'd say it out loud (pronouncing it how I would think it was pronounced if I went by the letters rather than the word itself...does that make sense, idk), makes the word sound hecka weird in my head but at least I can spell it right most of the time.

    Weird is a weird word bc weird does not follow the i before e rule.

    "Millennium" and "Soliloquy/soliloquies" trip me up the most. I wrote 3-4 papers on Shakespeare and I still can't spell 'soliloquy' without writing it out slowly each letter at the time and googling for the spelling

    worst 'rule' ever.

    for me, it always gets messy with diarrhea.
