What is the ONE word you can never seem to spell correctly?

I always have a problem spelling 'definitely'.

  • I can spell well if I'm paying attention and care about what I am writing, but I make tons of spelling errors and grammatical mistakes. I could pass it off as being dyslexic (which I am), but you'd likely not be able to understand what that really means. The reality is that spelling is a matter of memorization and proof reading and quiet frankly that is tedious. Being a pretty smart individual I despise monotony and take a lot of short cuts whenever possible. So when you see me plaster a pile of word garbage all over the internet mark it up to apathy for linguistics. I'm not concern about self image and am use to the endless line of idiots that want to correct my spelling and tell me how dumb I am and how they scored high on some meaningless standardized test that measured their basic skills. I spell everything incorrectly and don't devote time to prof reading because that's fucking boring. I know there is no link between spelling well and intelligence or even memorization and intelligence, however smart people tend to not waste their energy on the small stuff like remembering to take their laundry out and fold it or prof reading random ramblings...

  • I fuck up a lot of words for some reason. I have great English skills! But I can't spell for shit! Also sometimes my grammar sucks. But I can create a god damn story!!! lol >.< It bugs me actually, and some words I practice and STILL can't fucking spell them right. It drives me nuts. And I'm always going back and fixing my fucked up grammar. I wonder if other writers of the professional level ever have this problem.

  • Definitely... Think of finite... like space is finite or infinite, then add a DE.

    I had a hard time learning to spell specific.

    • Necessarily. There ya go :p

    • Thanks, lol๐Ÿ˜‚ I ALWAYS get it wrong.

    • its a tough one to remember.
      i always bring it back to "necessary". you just have to learn by heart there is 1 c and 2 s.
      then you can just replace the "-y" by "-ily" (as you can do in many other words)

      another tough one is necessity but the same base rules apply
      [necess] [-ity] -[ary] [-arily]
