Spell-check please!


So how’s your spelling? Is it pretty sound or is your Oxford Dictionary falling to pieces?

Well I’m happy to admit that spelling is not my Achilles Heel. I think I’m pretty good at it or at least I can say I don’t break a sweat over it.
However as I spend more and more time writing, I noticed that two particular words make me stumble over and over again. No matter how many times I use them, I can never spell them right the first time around. Now these are not ‘big’, scientific terms I’m talking about here. These are common words people use every day.

The word “unfortunately” (thank you Spell-check!) is my official enemy word. A simple word I can never get right. I always seem to misplace the ‘a’ and ‘e’ for some reason.

“Definitely” is another nemesis of mine. My version of the word tends to have more or less ‘i’s’ than it’s suppose to.
I don’t ever have a problem spelling big words like ‘irascible’ or ‘bourgeoisie’ but yet when I type ‘unfortunately’ or ‘definitely’, I’m greeted by that horrible red line that Microsoft Word imposes on us when we misspell a word.

So what’s your enemy word? Surely I can’t be the only one who has problems with specific terms. I know some people have issues with double‘s’ words like ‘necessary’. So come on, tell me your word weakness and make me feel better… 😉
