🤕 Word Pain Day

Wednesday, May 17 

Join our Misspelling Bee! Wrong spellings only. Everyone wins.  

As much as we love it, language can be messsy and fustrating. We feel your pain. That’s why we’re holding our very own Misspelling Bee! We want you to tell us the misspelling that still haunts you from that spelling bee in third grade. We want to hear about the word you misspell every time. Or the word that looks wrong no matter how you spell it. Tell us your spelling nemisis (sp?) and we’ll give the word the roasting it deserves (and maybe a tip for getting it right).

Plus: Cure your Word Pain with our spelling quizzes, games, and more.

🤩 Word Inspiration Day

Friday, May 19 

Your word could become our Word of the Day! 

What inspires us is you, and all the ways you use Dictionary.com and Thesaurus.com to express yourselves and turn your inspiration into words—and actions. 

Here at “D-com,” as we call it, we have a tradition in which new team members share the words that best tell us who they are. We want to extend that tradition to you—but with a twist.

Tell us: What one word would you want your name to appear next to in the Dictionary? We might choose the word you share with us as our Word of the Day—with your name alongside it!
