A commonly misspelled group of words are committee, committed, committing and commitment. Notice how the word commitment has only one ’t’ whereas the other words have two; however, don’t forget that in all word forms they have two ‘m’s.
Here is a list provided by wikihow:
A few commonly misspelled ones on the list are:
Suprise (correct spelling: surprise)
Seperate (correct spelling: separate)
Sieze (correct spelling: seize)
Vaccuum (correct spelling: vacuum)
Ukelele (correct spelling: ukulele)
Priviledge (correct spelling: privilege)
Perserverance (correct spelling: perseverance)
One shocker on the list was writting (with two ‘t’s!) – for any writers reading this, I wouldn’t have thought that any of you would have spelled it like that.
Tomorrow I will be talking about how reading can help you improve your spelling.
That’s all for today
