100 Most Often Misspelled Words

100 Most Often Misspelled Words

Over at yourDictionary.com, it has a good reference on the top 100 often misspelled words for English. On top of the word list, it also describes the reason of why it is easy to misspell. Examples such as:

changeable: The verb “change” keeps its [e] here to indicate that the [g] is soft, not hard. (That is also why “judgement” is the correct spelling of this word, no matter what anyone says.)

committed: If you are committed to correct spelling, you will remember that this word doubles its final [t] from “commit” to “committed.”

experience: Don’t experience the same problem many have with “existence” above in this word: -ence!

lightning: Learning how to omit the [e] in this word should lighten the load of English orthography a little bit

occurrence: Remember not only the occurrence of double double consonants in this word, but that the suffix is -ence, not -ance. No reason, just the English language keeping us on our toes.

The Lifehack Show Episode 6: On Friendship and Belonging

In this episode, we talk with Dr. Kyler Shumway, Doctor of Clinical Psychology and author of The Friendship Formula: How to Say Goodbye to Loneliness and Discover Deeper Connection. In his earlier years, Dr. Shumway was a target of bullying; he also found himself plagued with social anxiety, which he still battles today, yet also uses as an empowering guide to help others overcome social anxiety and form solid, lasting friendships within their own lives.

Dr. Shumway is an advocate for friendship and believes that: “… together, we can bring an end to the bullying problem by breaking the chain of suffering, daring to be different, and creating a world where everyone belongs.”
