It’s like having a mental block…permanently. Somewhere along the line, your brain decided to have a problem with the spelling of a particular word, and now you always seem to misspell it. Don’t feel bad. It’s something we all deal with.
Some of us use spelling tricks to resolve these conundrums, like the tried and true “I before E except after C” method (except for when that doesn’t work). Maybe you use a mnemonic, or completely personal reminders – like “I am definite that Nate is unfortunate.”
We’d love to hear about your chronic misspelling misadventures, so please share your experiences in this survey! It will just take a minute or two, and we’ll publish some of our favorite responses.
