It's embarrassing to say the least when I make a stupid mistake like that at work. Perhaps I need a personal proofreader? Here are some of my problematic words:
- affect or effect
- chief (this is where I sing "i" before "e" except after "c")
- dessert or desert (ah yes.. you always want more dessert so it has 2 "s"..)
- forty (for years I spelled it fourty)
- laid vs. layed
- loose vs. lose
- quiet vs. quite (my #1 Dunce)
Here's another preposterous grammatical problem that I have..
But! Let me proof read someone elses work and I can assure you I'll find an error worthy of the red pen..
OK, lets hear it... What are your most commonly misspelled words?
