Commonly Misspelled Words

This week when you hear our favorite radio voice, Mike Abbondanza, be listening for some references to misspelled words. Here it is for you non-radio-listening, Spotify-streaming types:

“That’s just wrong! Wrong with a captital-R… or is it a W?”

It got us thinking… what are other commonly misspelled words? Here are 10 of our favorite examples:

  1. Recieve — remember that it’s “i before e except after c.” Correct spelling: Receive.
  2. Definately — also sometimes “defiantly,” which is just too harsh. correct spelling: definitely.
  3. Wendesday — anyone else say “wed – nes – day” in their head? Just me? Correct spelling: Wednesday.
  4. Sandwhich — the extra “h” is not actually necessary. Correct spelling: sandwich.
  5. Seperate — easily corrected by another in-your-head pronunciation: “sep-AH-rate.” Correct spelling: separate.
  6. They’re, there, & their — easily the easiest words to misuse. “They’re” = “they are;” “There” is for places; “their” is a possessive pronoun.
  7. Principal or principle? — remember that your principal at school is your “pal”; your principles are your values or standards.
  8. Tommorow — this one is especially fun to misspell while writing in cursive. Correct spelling: tomorrow.
  9. Goverment — you actually have to “govern” to have a government. So don’t forget the “n” in there!
  10. Beutiful — here’s a fun video to help you remember this one, beautiful:
