Thats' cos their's lots of homophones out they're.
Those are just common errors of common words misspelled, The word most often misspelled in every state is "accordion".
You people in the US spell quite differently to the English. We, in Aus. have bastardised it somewhat.
The two that really stand out are labor - labour and Tire - tyre. To tire is to feel weakened.
We could go on forever but it does concern me when under 30's spell gr8.
Most of those are pretty easy words to spell. Maybe 5 are legitimately challenging.
I think I like tyre better -- it looks rounder to me than tire. But my spellchecker seems to think I've covfefe'd it.
English can be weird. It can be understood through tough thorough thought, though:
I take it you already know
Of tough and bough and cough and dough?
Others may stumble, but not you
On hiccough, thorough, slough, and through.
Well don't! And now you wish, perhaps,
To learn of less familiar traps.
Beware of heard, a dreadful word
That looks like beard but sounds like bird.
And dead: it's said like bed, not bead,
For goodness sake don't call it deed!
Watch out for meat and great and threat
(They rhyme with suite and straight and debt).
A moth is not a moth as in mother
Nor both as in bother, nor broth as in brother,
And here is not a match for there,
Nor dear and fear, for bear and pear.
And then there's dose and rose and lose--
Just look them up--and goose and choose
And cork and work and card and ward
And font and front and word and sword
And do and go, then thwart and cart,
Come, come! I've hardly made a start.
A dreadful Language? Why man alive!
I learned to talk it when I was five.
And yet to write it, the more I tried,
I hadn't learned it at fifty-five.
Really, NJ, "twelve"??? I can't think of a way to spell that wrong, even with my Jersey accent... Granted, we probably don't have to write it often as we are trained to use the word "dozen" with all the bagel and donut shops in every shopping complex. But, I'd also assume it's one of the first words you would ever learn to spell after the words in the sentence "Hello, my name is.." and the numbers one through 11.
Another one I find ironic is "college". Haha. It's also ironic/sad that I'll laugh at that but am not even sure what state that is... S. Dakota?
I'm on board with FL, I can never spell reciept correctly.
I think Wisconsin is a ringer; they can spell fine, they just wanted everyone to see where their state was on the map. Clever, those Wisconsinites…
Yeah, we fixed them for you and you refuse to acknowledge the favor. Ungrateful bastards.
Louisiana must have great spellers. They can spell commonly used words like "tomorrow" and "beautiful" It's down to giraffe. How often does one use "giraffe" in a sentence?
My girlfriend drank half a giraffe of wine the other night.
Anyone who says I can't spell is a looser.
I'd guess arctic would be on the list.
Always remember: "It's 'I' before 'E' except after 'C'! So...."receipt"
Too bad she didn't drink a whole one. You mighta got lucky!
their - they're
^^ Two misspellings?
